How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

If you're interested in renting this $2,295 per month apartment, we suggest you move quickly. Apartments with private outdoor space don't last long. While the place itself isn't big, it would be hard to feel too claustrophobic when you know you can lounge right outside anytime (weather permitting).

The lowdown: It's on the first floor of  five-story elevator building with laundry facilities. The building went up in 1901, and it's got some sweet, old-fashioned details, like exposed brick. The kitchen, though, has new stainless appliances. And despite its small size, its got a dishwasher.

The big draw here, though, is the private outdoor space. Sure, you're not going to get much of a view, since it appears as though your only windows look out onto the deck, but this may be a small price to pay for being able to invite friends over for outdoor cocktails.

It's also about $600 less than the median price for studios in the area. See what we're saying? Getting moving.
