No-Fee Apartment of the Week: Upper West Side one-bedroom for $3,500

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | December 23, 2011 - 11:29AM

This no-fee $3,500 one-bedroom Upper West Side apartment is being rented by the owner, and features a dining alcove. It’s 850 square feet, and, according to the listing, is located on 86th Street near Columbus Avenue.

The apartment’s in a pre-war elevator building, with a marble lobby, laundry in the building and a live-in super.

The lease is available for one or more years.

Pros: Each room has generous proportions (by Manhattan standards): the large living room measures 13x21 and the bedroom is 11x17. Plus, the apartment has 11-foot ceilings, hardwood floors and crown moldings. It's also in a prime location on the Upper West Side

Cons: Even with no broker fee, the rent is on the high side for a one-bedroom in a non-doorman building.
