This $3,250 one-bedroom apartment, at 208 West 23rd Street (just off Seventh Avenue), is on the 8th floor of the historic Carteret building, next to the Chelsea Hotel. The building, which was once a hotel, has studios, 1- and 2-bedroom apartments.
Note: Pets are allowed, but there will be a pet interview.
Pros: The apartment is in a doorman building with an elevator, fitness center and roof deck. The building was built in 1927 by famed hotel and apartment building architect Emery Roth.
Cons: The building is located on a busy, loud intersection. The 5-cubic-foot undercounter refrigerator means chefs/home cooks need not apply.
