Like hardwood floors and washer-dryers, exposed brick walls are one of the most coveted (and classic) apartment features in New York City. This week, the The Agency team rounds up six one-bedroom and studio apartments that feature brick walls, gorgeous wood floors and other high end features.
A tech-savvy brokerage whose agents are paid bonuses based on your satisfaction, The Agency eliminates many of the annoyances usually associated with a NYC apartment search. You can search the same listings the pros are searching right on the The Agency site, and instead of emailing a dozen different brokers, see all your picks with a single agent. Once you’ve signed your lease, The Agency keeps the perks coming, with exclusive deals on moving companies, cleaners, delivery services and more. In keeping with the firm's ethical ethos, The Agency donates a portion of every brokerage fee to the housing charity Rebuilding Together NYC, so for each person they help find a home, a family in need can stay in theirs.
