Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,450/month
Grab this pristine apartment before it’s gone! It has plenty to offer, including gorgeous hardwood floors, cozy radiator heat, high ceilings, a dishwasher (yippee!) and two bedrooms large enough for queen and king-sized beds.
Two-bedroom in Long Island City, $2,500/month
When it comes to this cool family-friendly spot, all we can say is wow! A spacious living room with beautiful natural light and deep sills (perfect for little kiddos cuddling in with a book) and a huge kitchen make this a great pick. Did we mention it’s an elevator building with a fitness center, swimming pool and doorman?
Two-bedroom in Park Slope, $2,500/month
This apartment’s country-feel kitchen with stainless steel appliances makes for a great family dinner spot! The space also offers two large bedrooms with closets and a prime location in Park Slope (and it’s pet-friendly)!
Two-bedroom in Brooklyn Heights, $2,550/month
This skinny (but roomy!) abode in Brooklyn Heights is located in a historic neighborhood. The kitchen is tiny, but there’s plenty of space for a butcher’s block and kitchen table to make things workable. The best part? The apartment is just steps from Brooklyn Bridge Park Pier 5 & 6.
Two-bedroom in Crown heights, $2,400/month
These new apartments have an old world feel—they come complete with a living room fireplace and exposed brick walls in two spots. Everything is in mint condition, and you’ll enjoy a large soaking tub and a brand new kitchen with a gas range and stainless steel appliances.
