If you’ve got Upper West Side dreams and a modest budget, we might have the apartment for you. This co-op studio comes with all the bells and whistles of a full-service building, minus the sky-high price tag.
Address: 235 W. 102nd St. #4T
Neighborhood: Upper West Side
Best feature: Located the Broadmoor, a full-service prewar co-op, this studio comes with some pretty sweet amenities. Residents can look forward to laundry facilities, bike rooms, a live-in super, doorman, and lobby concierge. A furnished roof deck and solarium provide a perfect place to decompress from the daily grind of city life.
The unit is not fancy, but the rich wood floors and beamed ceilings are hard not to love. The separate kitchen, though small, is a nicely functional touch. The unit is also garden-facing, which means it should be pretty quiet.
With Central Park, easy transportation, and countless restaurants just a few blocks away, this studio offers a great location for those who like to live in the thick of things.
Why it’s a deal: Renting for $1,895 per month, the place comes in far below the $2,400 median for the studios on the Upper West Side. It should leave you plenty of cash to explore your new ‘hood.

Biggest drawback: Though you’re probably tempted to pounce on this studio, you may need to pump the breaks. Since it’s located in a co-op, this rental requires board approval of its tenant. But it’s probably worth the extra step to ball on a budget.
