W 109th St #1B
Two-bedroom on the Upper West Side, $2,550/month ($1,275 per person)
The exposed brick and hardwood floors in this renovated apartment say ultra-cool modern urban living while the location—walking distance from Central Park—screams classic NYC. Not so classic, however, is the fact that this pad boasts a dishwasher, a washer and dryer, and ample closet space. Plus, it's close to Columbia, meaning you'll be able to soak up the sun when it's nice out on the school's gorgeous campus and relive your college glory days carousing with students at neighborhood bars. What could be better?
