The kitchen in this $1,850 one-bedroom in Yorkville is no-frills, but what do you expect for under-$2k in Manhattan?

Lately our no-fee weekly spotlights have been trending on the more expensive side (hovering somewhere in the $3k-$4k range), so this week we've gone the less-expensive route -- with an $1,850 one-bedroom in Yorkville.

Pros: The under-$2,000 rent is hard to beat, especially in a non-studio apartment. There's laundry in the building, and it's only a short walk from beautiful Carl Shurz Park, and the East Side promenade.

Cons: Just off York Avenue, the building is a long walk from the nearest subway, and the space looks small. Check out that tiny kitchen on the left. Also, the building is a walk-up, and the listing is portentously vague as to the floor the apartment is on.
