No-Fee Apartment of the Week: Large $4,500 one-bedroom in Midtown

Fifth Avenue between 38th and 39th Street may not quite be the Fifth Avenue address of your real estate dreams, but this $4,500 corner-unit one-bedroom has plenty of amenities that might just make up for it.

Pros: The apartment is a corner unit, so it's large — over 800 square feet. The kitchen is new and there are lots of windows. Plus, the building has a doorman, concierge, roof deck, gym and pool.

Cons: Despite the congested-and-a-little bit-gritty neighborhood, the price tag is high for a one-bedroom. Plus the apartment, to us, has a bit of a cookie-cutter feel.
