Two-bedroom on the Upper East Side, $2,550/month

This Upper East Side apartment is equipped with hardwood floors, a spacious kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and a full-size dishwasher—but the prime location is the real draw.

The 6 train is easily accessible at the 77th Street station, and the crosstown bus on 79th St zips right through the park to get you to the west side in a flash.
