Even though this summer has been temperate and rainy, the dog days of August are almost here, meaning there’s still plenty of hot weather ahead.
That’s why this week Brick Underground took a look at how to keep your NYC apartment cool, checking out the highest-rated, best-selling in-window and through-the-wall ACs, split units, PTAC, and portable units that you can buy on Amazon, Home Depot, and Lowe's.
But when you really want to chill out in style and comfort (and quiet), central air conditioning is what you want. In NYC, you’re most likely to find central air in new or updated apartments, as it’s a very pricey, major renovation project to do in an older building.
So if central air is on your wish list, here are five apartments around the city, all two bedrooms with central air for under $1 million—several are far less than that—with open houses this weekend.
