No-Fee Apartment of the Week: East Village two-bedroom for $3,995
This $3,995 East Village two-bedroom is located at 202 East 13th Street, just off Third Avenue. Somewhat mysteriously (perhaps a reflection of the slow winter rental season?), the apartment price has dropped by $700 since it first hit the market in the fall, and is now being offered by its third brokerage.
The building has a remote doorman system.
Pros: The apartment has exposed brick, stainless steel appliances and a granite kitchen. It also has a washer/dryer(!) and two marble bathrooms. According to the ad, it can be converted into a three-bedroom, though we suspect that at around 900-square-feet, that would be a bit of a squeeze.
Cons: It's a third-floor walk-up and the newly updated kitchen is one of those infamous NYC kitchen walls rather than its own room.
