No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $3,200 Battery Park City one-bedroom

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | February 24, 2012 - 11:06AM

This week's no-fee selection is a $3,200 one-bedroom at Battery Park City's 22 River Terrace. The 27-story luxury building has a river and park-front location, and has picture-window panoramas. 

Pros: There's a doorman, gym, children's room and outdoor space in this pet-friendly building. The promenade is outside your door. The building is offering a $500 credit toward rent if you come direct (without a broker) through February 29.

Cons: Some might find Battery Park City a little bit out of the way transportation and amenity-wise (though for others that out-of-the-city feel might be a plus). Also, since this is the least expensive of the 1-bedrooms currently on the market in the building, we suspect it's on a low floor. (Three other 1-bedrooms are available for $3,525-$3,675.) It also has a city view as opposed to a river view.
