No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $3,950 DUMBO loft

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | May 11, 2012 - 3:31PM

We’re kind of salivating over the openness of this $3,950 one-bedroom loft at 220 Water St. in Dumbo.

The unit is available starting June 1.

Pros: As the photo shows, the space is airy and modern, with 14-foot ceilings, exposed columns and beams and high-end appliances. There’s individually controlled central air and heat in each apartment, as well as washer/dryers. The luxe building has a children’s playroom, pet wash and more. Plus, the neighborhood has the whole “industrial chic” thing down pat.

Cons:  The rent – nearly $4,000 for a one-bedroom (albeit a large and beautiful one) – is pretty high (though the building does accept guarantors). Plus,supermarket shopping is a bit tricky (and expensive) in DUMBO.
