No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $3,700 two-bedroom in Harlem

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | June 15, 2012 - 2:25PM

This $3,700 two-bedroom, two-bath apartment at 454 Manhattan Avenue, between 119th and 120th Streets, is available for viewing on July 5.

Pros: The apartment is in a modern building known as Susan's Court. It features stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. The building has a  lobby attendant (not a doorman), a common backyard, laundry, storage and indoor parking is also available for an additional fee. The apartment has a balcony off of the living/dining room.

Cons: Not much, except maybe the neighborhood. Though it's currently seeing a flurry of real estate activity and new restaurants and shops opening up almost weekly, some buildings in the surrounding area feel a bit more dilapidated. The price might seem a little high, considering that comparable apartments may go for a similar amount just a little bit further downtown.
