1BR, $1,698—RENTED
Ave A between 13th and 14th Sts
Included: Heat and hot water
Broker’s fee: None
To move in: First month’s rent, one-month security
The apartment: The bedroom in this bright, airy apartment is huge. Other bonuses: Two windows face the backyard, it has two gigantic closets and pretty French doors. The kitchen is small, but it’s been tricked out with brand-new appliances and a little eating area that could easily fit two barstools. Avenue A isn’t exactly a quiet stretch, but lazy tenants will love the convenience—there’s a grocery store, a pizza joint and a nail salon within a block.

2BR, $1,650
619 E 5th St between Aves B and C, No. 8
Included: Heat and hot water, laundry in building, bike storage
Broker’s fee: None
To move in: First month’s rent, one-month security
The apartment: The listing for this Alphabet City spot was accurate: It does have two real bedrooms with windows and closets in each, though one of the rooms is super tiny (it’s questionable whether you could squeeze in a full-size bed). But you’re paying for two bedrooms and the location, so it’s no shock that the living room is almost nonexistent. Other perks: The kitchen and bathroom are both fairly roomy and recently updated, and the building—a cool walk-up with a bright-red door—offers a laundry room and bike storage. For a $15 annual access fee, you can chill in the private garden, but screaming schoolchildren from the P.S. 64 playground next door may disrupt your quiet time.

Junior 1BR, $1,400
209 E 4th St between Aves A and B, No. 9
Included: Heat and hot water
Broker’s fee: One month’s rent
To move in: First month and last month, one-month security
The apartment: This apartment, in a well-maintained walk-up, was billed as a junior one bedroom; in reality, it’s a spacious studio. It has a decent-size bedroom, kitchen and living area (which is big enough for a love seat and a TV), but there are no doors separating the rooms. The kitchen’s relatively new appliances and white cabinets are immaculate, and two large windows brighten up the whole apartment. On the downside, the toilet isn’t in the bathroom —it’s located on the other end of the bedroom.

2BR, $1,945
700 E 9th St at Ave C, No. 10
Included: Heat and hot water
Broker’s fee: None
To move in: First month’s rent, one-month security
The apartment: A narrow hallway separates the kitchen from the bedrooms. They’re both small, but each has a window, closet and enough space for a full bed. Another plus: The kitchen and bathroom are being renovated. The biggest selling point, though, is the block on which this brick walk-up building is located, which features a number of trendy bars and cute restaurants.

1BR, $1,600
638 E 14th St between Aves B and C, No. 12A
Included: Heat and hot water
Broker’s fee: None
Needed to move in: First month’s rent, one-month security
The apartment: The block this walk-up is on stinks—literally. Fumes from a nearby Con Ed factory fill the air outside. But the apartment’s spacious living areas, stainless steel appliances and brand-new shower almost make up for the stench. In addition to a large bedroom, this place has two separate living areas; one could be a living room while the other could easily be turned into an office or dining room. Fortunately, it didn’t smell gross inside.

153 Ave A between 9th and 10th Sts
Included: Heat and hot water

The apartment: This studio is small but charming. Hardwood floors, new tile in the bathroom and marble countertops are nice touches. Although you couldn’t fit a full table in the kitchenette, it does features a bar—add a couple of bar stools and you’ll be set for drinks and dinner.
