There are few things as coveted in New York City as a rent-stabilized apartment, and while there aren't nearly enough of them to go around, make no mistake: They're out there for the taking. (Even if it means months of strategic search efforts.) In the interest of simplifying the search, we rounded up currently available rentals that also fall under rent-stabilization. Now sit back, and enjoy that sweet, sweet rent freeze.

An affordable option in Prospect Heights: this stabilized $1,500/month studio, located in a pre-war elevator building that allows pets.

It would appear there are still tenants living in this stabilized Washington Heights one-bedroom, which is asking $2,043/month but offering a concession of two months free. The building also has a laundry room on-site, and a live-in super.

In Yorkville on 89th Street between 2nd and 3rd, there's this sparse, stabilized studio, currently asking $1,690/month. This option might be best for Seamless fans, as it looks like there's only room for a mini-fridge in that kitchen.

At $1,926/month, this stabilized Harlem studio isn't anyone's idea of cheap, but it is located in a brand new building that has digital doorman service, an elevator, and on-site laundry.

$2,095/month isn't too bad for a one-bedroom these days in Crown Heights, and this stabilized option on Saint Johns place is pet-friendly, has well-kept hardwood floors (and some charming prewar details), and an elevator in the building.

Back uptown in Washington Heights, this new construction stabilized one-bedroom is asking $1,950/month, with the option to convert the place into a two-bedroom. The building features 24-hour surveillance, on-site laundry, and a live-in super.

Unsurprisingly, you'll save even more money if you head way up to Inwood, where a $1,450/month stabilized studio is currently on the market. The building has a live-in super, and is just two blocks from Isham park.
