One of the shittiest parts of being single in New York City is that it’s harder to afford a studio or one-bedroom, since you lack another warm body to split the rent with. No matter: two-bedrooms are notably more affordable than one-bedrooms, if you’re splitting the rent with a roomie. And if you partition off the rooms to transform a two-bedroom into a four-bedroom? Just think of the cash you’ll save illegally subletting those tiny, lightless, makeshift rooms!
Scroll on down through these available rentals per our nifty listing site – majority two-bedrooms below, but we’ve included some other configurations as well.
Closeup on that sink tap
Room in a three-bedroom
As we get through this thing called life, it is the hardwood floors and stainless steel appliances which, among a few other more emotional aspects, make it easier. Those jail-like window bars do not make it easier, but for this price tag you’ll live.
So many squares
A block from the L, this unit is all about everybody’s favorite four-sided shape. An honest two-bedroom, at least one of the bedrooms seems to have a nice, bright view of the green street beyond, and the bathroom is vintage af.
Wowee! Either the broker upped the brightness on these photos or this apartment is VERY well lit with lots of natural sun. The unit is rent stabilized and the description makes it seem as though the second bedroom is quite small, but hey space is space.
Yellow statement wall alert
Long limbed in layout, this unit is hard to visualize from the photos alone, but the description says it’s a railroad flat. Each bedroom has private access + there’s no broker’s fee and heat and hot water are included.
The Avenue N station is three blocks away from this unit, meaning you’re only 30 minutes out from Manhattan per the F train. There’s a minimum household income and credit score, which is odd, but if you make the cut the apartment and building both look spacious and clean.
The Brooklyn Bridge curtain is disorienting
The food in Bensonhurst is Manhattan quality at Brooklyn prices, I’ll tell ya. The unit would also appear to be Brooklyn priced with much more than Manhattan level space. It’s in a private house too, which don’t happen too often across the East River.
Chandelier in the kitchen turn up
While the chandelier obviously steals the show, the kitchen below is newly renovated and pretty snazzy itself. Meanwhile, the rest of the space has some dark corners but plenty of bright ones and the flooring is blindingly clean.
Bensonhurst apartments all look the same, apparently
The window moldings are suspiciously similar to the above Bensonhurst listing – maybe that’s your neighbor? The apartment is quaint and appears to be split level, with the kitchen directly at the top of the stairs and the bedrooms off the hallway.
