No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $2,850 UWS studio in luxury smoke-free building
This $2,850 alcove studio is located in Related Company's The Lyric, at 255 West 94th Street, between Broadway and West End. It's right above Symphony Space, and less than a block away from the 1,2 and 3 trains. Note the building, which is pet-friendly, is also smoke-free, which could be a pro or con depending on your habits.
Pros: The modern, upscale interiors were designed by Rockwell Group, and apartments featuring marble bathrooms with Kohler fixtures. Amenities include a rooftop sun terrace with dining area (and views), business center and Internet lounge, children’s playroom, and a health and fitness center.
Cons: The state-of-the art fixtures and amenities--as well as the high standards set by Related owned-and-managed properties--come with a high rent.
