If you like your rental in a building with a lot of amenities (and we mean a lot—there’s a 60-foot pool, for starters) this one bedroom, 10-40 River Rd., #4D40R, on Roosevelt Island, may be the one for you. It’s listed for $3,150 a month with one month free and no broker’s fee.

That’s higher than the $2,750 median for one bedrooms across the East River on the Upper East Side, but you get a lot for the money. 

The apartment is in Manhattan Park, a large complex with 880 units and a large, stylish lobby. The pool overlooks the river, and there’s a waterfront promenade, English garden with outdoor movie screenings, and a roof deck with barbecue grills.

The apartment is listed as a flexible two bedroom, which if permitted could be accomplished by closing off the dining space.

The kitchen is compact, with an island serving triple duty as sink, prep station, and breakfast bar.

There are more river views from the bedroom.

The balcony overlooks the river and is planted.


The amenities continue: There's also an outdoor children's play area, 24-hour gym, valet services, laundry room, and bicycle storage.

The island is connected to the city by the Roosevelt Island tram, the F train, and the Roosevelt Island Bridge. The neighborhood ranked the highest on Brick Underground's best places to park in Manhattan. Gristedes supermarket and P.S./I.S. 217 are a few blocks away.
