Departing tenants can provide pertinent listing information that only someone who's lived in the place might think to bring up.
Such is the case with a $2,895/month 2-bedroom in Tribeca that made it into this week's Hot Dozen—the twelve most-viewed listings on StreetEasy over the last seven days. The current tenant--who is breaking the lease to move in with his or her girlfriend--took the trouble to enumerate all the details about which a renter might want to be aware.
Examples: The unit has a washer and dryer "ten paces" from the front door of the unit ("so it’s almost like having a washer/dryer in the apartment"). It has an oversized bathroom ("I have yet to see a larger bathroom in a one-bedroom apartment in Manhattan") and an Equinox gym in the building that offers a 40 percent discount to tenants.
The one downside appears to be a very strict pet policy.
