No-Fee Apartment of the Week: $4,300 three-bedroom on the Lower East Side

By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | March 15, 2013 - 12:51PM

Located in the more hipster-than-stroller-friendly Lower East Side, this $4,300 three-bedroom might be more likely to attract roommates looking for a share rather than families.

Pros: The new boutique elevator building allows pets and has a roof deck. There are also two bathrooms! Appliances (which include a washer/dryer) are new, and for many, you can't beat the excitement of the neighborhood.

Cons: The rent is net effective, which probably means that the monthly outlay is higher and there's a free month or so rent thrown in there. Also, at under 1,000-square-foot, the apartment isn't big for a three-bedroom, and we're wondering if the wall off the kitchen is meant to create a living room/dining room or a "bedroom."
