Corcoran

Gramercy

A
one-bedroom
in a building on the north side of Gramercy Park is
renting for $3,800/month. Though the bedroom isn’t exactly huge,
the living room is, with big windows and a kitchen that opens up
into the living area. The apartment also has plenty of closet
space. It’s close to the exclusive park, but alas, doesn’t come
with a key.


Brooklyn Landmark Real Estate Corp

Brooklyn Heights

A two-bedroom
in Brooklyn Heights (on Henry Street close to Cadman Plaza Park) is
renting for $3,800/month. The apartment is a railroad, and may not
have shiny new bells and whistles, but it does come with a
wood-burning fireplace and measures close to 1,000 square feet.


Compass

Tribeca

What does $3,800 rent in Tribeca?
A small studio
, but one that comes furnished, in a condo
building on Worth Street near Broadway. On the plus side,
everything in the space is new, the kitchen is quite lovely, and
amenities in the building include a roof deck.


Engel & Völkers New York Real Estate

Bushwick

In Bushwick, a huge three-bedroom
duplex
is renting for $3,800/month. The apartment is close to
1,500 square feet, and was recently renovated—there are new
appliances, a washer/dryer, large windows, and other mod cons.
There’s also a balcony with enough space for a grill and
seating.


Citi Habitats

Upper East Side

And finally, on the Upper East Side,
a two-bedroom
on the neighborhood’s eastern edge—it’s on
81st Street between East End and York avenues—is going for
$3,775/month. The kitchen has new appliances and “condo like”
finishes, according to the listing, and exposed brick lends plenty
of character.
