The apartment is in the Grand Concourse Historic District, but looks brand new inside.

A floor-through, fully renovated three bedroom, one bath for under $3,000 a month is a rare find in New York. This three bedroom in Concourse is all that, and it's listed by Keller Williams for $2,600—plus one month free, and the broker fee is waived.

It strikes us as a good deal for the space, which can serve as a blank canvas for renters ready to decorate. Located in the Bronx's Grand Concourse Historic District, in a three-family building that dates back to 1899, the apartment is across the street from the Bronx Museum of the Arts (which recently underwent a major expansion), about three blocks from Yankee Stadium, and a short walk to the B, D, and 4 trains. 

In the open living and dining area, separated by a hallway from the bedrooms, large windows bring in plenty of natural light. The kitchen is outfitted with subway tile, ample white cabinetry, new stainless steel appliances, and track lighting. 

The listing touts the three bedrooms as "king sized," although one looks substantially narrower than the others and may be better suited as a nursery, office, or guest room. All appear to have decent closet space, though perhaps not great light or views (the shades are drawn). The master bedroom is expansive, and part of it has a neat tin ceiling. The bathroom looks relatively roomy, but storage could be a challenge if three or more people are sharing the apartment. 

The building's history is more evident in the red brick exterior. The listing notes that the electrical system has been updated, and there is a video intercom. Pets are permitted.
