Where can you find a large three-bedroom, two-bath rental for a reasonable price in a convenient Manhattan location? Try this $3,300/month floor-through duplex at 1557 Lexington Avenue and East 99th Street. While technically this unit is in East Harlem, it is not far north of the 96th Street dividing line, and is very close to Mount Sinai Medical Center. As a bonus, it is in one of the two Harlem sub-neighborhoods with reasonable food delivery choices (82 SeamlessWeb.com delivery options!).
At $3,300 for 2,000 square feet, the rent is in line with other three-bedroom, two-bath options in East Harlem. Both levels of this third-floor walk-up duplex are floor-through spaces, and there's a large eat-in-kitchen with dishwasher, hardwood floors, exposed brick and good light. Downside (besides the walk-up aspect): There's no laundry room in the building.
