This one-bedroom duplex, 174 East 90th St., #1A, in Carnegie Hill is listed at $2,945 a month, considerably less than the neighborhood’s median rent for one bedrooms, which is $3,192, according to StreetEasy.
You’re getting a lot of unique features considering the price, including your own outdoor space. There’s also a wood-burning fireplace, and two bathrooms—one on each floor. The apartment has a spiral staircase, which looks great but could be a safety hazard.
The duplex is located in a five-story building built in 1920 and has a total of 34 units. The only amenities are the live-in super and a laundry room—perhaps why the rent is a bit low.
The kitchen is slightly out-of-date, but there is a stainless steel stove.
The outdoor space, enclosed with a wall of greenery, has a deck and room for an outdoor dining table.
The 4,5,6, and Q subway lines are a short walk from the building. The many bars and eateries of the Upper East Side are at your doorstep, including Naruto Ramen, Sarabeth’s, DTUT, and The Writing Room.
