New concessions being offered by landlords have been rather limited recently (perhaps landlords are holding out for a spring thaw), but we did find this intriguing deal today while poking around on StreetEasy.com. Rent this penthouse triplex at 37 West 54th Street (between Fifth and Sixth Avenues) by the end of the year and you'll get one free month. Although the triplex begins on the fourth floor of a walk-up building, it has four bedrooms, three baths, two terraces, and is newly renovated with a gourmet kitchen. The $5,495 effective rent is low for an apartment of that size in Midtown, and as shares are welcome, this could be an appealing choice to a group of physically fit roommates. The location, overlooking the Museum of Modern Art, is extremely convenient, and central air conditioning is the icing on the cake.
