No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $2,500 studio in the Financial District

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | December 21, 2012 - 12:44PM

This studio at 99 John Street is in a full-service condo building.

Pros: At over 600 square feet, this studio is a good size, and the fact that it's a condo means it comes with amenities not usually seen in rentals (plus the owner might actually take care of repairs swiftly). There's a fitness center, roof deck and laundry in the building. Also, the apartment has a seperate kitchen (and not a kitchen wall).

Cons:  The price is a bit high for  one room, plus some people might not like the feel of the neighborhood -- very busy during the week and quiet on the weekends. Also, since it's a condo, you could be out of luck if the owner decides to sell at some point.
