No-Fee Apartment of the Week: Large Upper East Side studio for $2,750 per month

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | December 9, 2011 - 2:53PM

This apartment, located at 201 East 69th Street (between Second and Third Avenues), is available as a sublet through August for $2,750 per month, or you can choose to sign a new one-year lease with the management company for $2,800 per month.

It’s listed as a studio, but the 700-square-foot apartment has a separate living room and sleeping areas (though the living space is bigger than the sleeping space).

Don't be too distracted by the dowdy furnishings: The apartment is on the 14th floor of a luxury doorman building with a 24-hour concierge desk, gym and a landscaped roof deck.

Pros: In addition to the above, there's the prime Upper East Side location and the architectural design — including curved walls and a 9-foot beamed ceiling. The kitchen has new stainless steel appliances and a granite countertop. The bedroom area has a walk-in closet.

Cons: There’s only one window in the whole apartment.
