You want an apartment with classic feel and a perfect location at decent price? Our Rental of the Week is in a prewar Upper West Side building and has 1 true bedroom and no broker’s fee.
Address: 268 W. 84th St. #4D
Price: $2,500; no broker’s fee
Neighborhood: Upper West Side
Best feature: Don’t let the accent rugs distract you. With charming views of a leafy courtyard, this apartment has classic New York City vibes. The fixtures and finishes are not fancy, but the building has an elevator, live-in super, laundry room in the basement, and easy access to Broadway, Riverside Park, and the 1 train at 86th Street.
Why it’s a deal: The median price for a 1-bedroom on the Upper West Side is $3,105, a good $600 above the asking rent for this unit. There’s also no broker’s fee.
Biggest drawback: This is a true 1-bedroom in an elevator building, but it is definitely not huge — the kitchen and living room are basically the same thing. Good thing the entire Upper West Side is right out the front door.
