We have to admit that as much as we love looking at "aspirational" penthouses and over-the-top townhouses, we like looking at WTF/Only in New York listings almost as much. (You can probably tell). This $2,080 midtown "studio" with death-defying loft, half-fridge, glorified hot plate — oh, it's a walk-up, too — certainly falls into the latter category (though we'll admit the downstairs area is WAY nicer than some we've seen before).
Please peruse the photos below for just a moment, to make your own judgements:
We admit it's neat as a pin, which is way better than some places we've seen before. The stairs look sturdy and it looks like it gets decent light. But again: $2,080 a month?!?
Consider these apartments asking the same price. And talk about luxury: They all even have ovens.
This Upper East Side one-bedroom (see below) has an actual bedroom. While the oven isn't full-sized, at least this place has one. Plus it's cheaper than the one above, at $1,950 a month.
In Greenpoint, Brooklyn for $80 less each month (below), you can get an extra half bedroom (not a half-bed). But, unlike the first listing, utilities are not included.
Head out to Astoria, Queens and you can get a two-bedroom, also in a walk-up (below). But check out that kitchen upgrade.
