Would you pay a higher rent to have your very own washer/dryer?


This two-bedroom, one-bath apartment, 48-36 41st St., #2A, in Sunnyside, Queens, has a lot of amenities that are not always found in a rental but keep in mind, you're going to be paying more here than than other apartments in the neighborhood.

The apartment has an in-unit washer/dryer, central air conditioning, and a dishwasher. The renovated building has a communal courtyard and bike room—and there's only six units.

The apartment is listed at a net-effective rent of $2,750, with one month’s rent free—but that's not the rent you're actually on the hook for each month. You’re really paying $3,000 a month. That's a lot more than the median rent for two bedrooms in the neighborhood, which is $2,388, according to Streeteasy. The listing is also a no-fee apartment, so you're saving some money upfront.


The open kitchen has stainless steel appliances.



Both bedrooms have closets and two large windows.


The bath is fully tiled.


The apartment is only a few blocks from the 7 line's 40th Street station, making a commute to Midtown Manhattan around 23 minutes.

The neighborhood has bars, restaurants, and shopping. There is a C-Town Supermarket only a three-minute walk away and a local pharmacy at the corner of the block. The apartment is only a 20 minute walk from the historic Sunnyside Gardens, one of the country’s first planned communities.
