If you’re looking to rent a New York City apartment right now, home office space might be one of  your must-haves since a majority of businesses are still closed or are severely limiting the number of employees who come into the office.

Currently, there are over 1,860 rentals listed on StreetEasy with some sort of home office space, so you have options. Some NYC apartments have separate home offices while others have second bedrooms, dining rooms, large closets, alcoves, lofts, or foyers that can function as your work-from-home space. 

Found an apartment with a lot of room but not a separate home office with the privacy you need for calls and video conferences? You can use pressurized walls to make a temporary home office space, which is ideal because you can remove them without causing damage when you leave. 

So, if you’re looking for a rental with home office space, here are five on the market including a Ditmas Park one bedroom and a Williamsburg two bedroom.
