Rental pick of the week

A small but stylish SoHo studio that can even come furnished

SoHo living is within reach thanks to this $2,500 petite but chic studio on Thompson Street listed by CORE. Bright white walls, high ceilings and natural light help compensate for the compact footprint of this apartment on a desirable high floor; pre-war details like wood floors and exposed brick add charm and warmth.

A newly-renovated bath features a marble sink, chrome fixtures and white subway tile, and the similarly refreshed kitchen is outfitted with ebony cabinetry, a white tile backsplash and a roomy, stainless steel refrigerator.  

Additionally, somewhat uncommon and practical draws include two ample closets and functional built-ins, as well as an elevator to ensure coming home is a delight, not a drag. Finally, no Murphy bed needed — a cozy sleeping nook fits a full-size bed. 

The apartment, part of a well-maintained co-op with a part-time super, also offers an enviable urban combo: located on a quiet, tree-lined street, it's still not far from subway lines and amenities like Gourmet Garage, just around the corner. (Don't have any furniture? No problem. This place can be delivered fully loaded. Just add you.) 

One thing to keep in mind though: since it's in a co-op, you may very well be limited to a two-year lease. Between that and the potential for furniture included, we think this could be the right choice for a couple-of-year work stint in NYC.
