Two bedroom (flex-three), two bath at 321 East 69th Street on the Upper East Side, $4,100

A loft-like living room and large kitchen (with plenty of cabinets, stainless steel appliances and granite countertops), plus two full baths make this uptown rental both family and roommate-friendly.

One bedroom, one bath at East 61st Street and 2nd Avenue on the Upper East Side, $2,700

Say goodbye to cookie cutter. This one bedroom pet-friendly rental has charm to spare thanks to exposed brick walls, glass-paned French doors, a marble bath and a gourmet kitchen (with stainless steel appliances, of course). Its location within walking distance of great shops, restaurants and Central Park doesn’t hurt either.  Bonus: No broker's fee on this one.

One bedroom, one bath at 45 Wall Street in the Financial District, $3,800

Who needs a drafty, decrepit loft when you can have a lofty one bedroom with a chic stainless steel and glass kitchen, oak floors, great closet space and a large sleeping alcove in an amenity-packed doorman building with a roof deck and a swish gym, too?

Three bedroom, two bath at 320 Greene Avenue in Clinton Hill, $4,750

Imagine cooking and dining in this oversized, light-filled kitchen. Then imagine spreading out over this duplex's three bedroom, two bathroom space with its private terrace, central heat and AC and washer/dryer hookup. Get the picture?

One bedroom, one bath at 200 West End Avenue on the Upper West Side, $4,250

Fans of opera, ballet and classical music will appreciate this Costas Kondylis-designed pet-friendly one bedroom rental for its built-in library, open chefs kitchen, in-unit washer/dryer and marble bathroom—and, especially, its proximity to Lincoln Center.

Two bedroom, two bath at 350 West 50th Street in Midtown Manhattan, $6,200

If a panoramic view of Manhattan and beyond tops your list of apartment must-haves, then this light-soaked, 1,100-square-foot, 22nd floor home with plenty of high-end details (stainless steel appliances, in-unit washer/dryer, fitness center in the building) is for you.

One bedroom, one bath at 101 West 24th Street in Chelsea, $5,100

What do you get when you combine the best features of a loft (like 11+ foot ceilings, tall windows, open chefs kitchen) with all the benefits of a lux condo (think doorman, concierge, central heat and AC, a fitness center with its own b-ball court)? This one-bedroom rental in The Chelsea Stratus, which features all of the above, plus appliances by Subzero, Fisher & Paykel, Asko and more.
