I'm trying to find the perfect one bedroom for a client who is relocating to New York City. She's a Connecticut gal like myself, so I'm willing to go the extra mile and preview tons of stuff for her. Also, we got downright abused in the rain yesterday but we managed to still have fun.
This afternoon was a quiet one. Methinks Manhattanites are recovering from being cooped up yesterday, so I checked out a few one beds in the East 50s whose price points were a little too low to drag a client to if I hadn't first seen it. No one wants to see a dump!
Below is one of the best one bedroom deals I've seen in a while. There are two real $1700 one bedrooms in the same building on East 50th Street between First and Second Avenue. It's a quiet block, lined with brownstones and near all the fun bars and restaurants. There's a real kitchen, exposed brick, deco fireplace and great closets. The super is a very nice guy as well. He and I had a little chat this afternoon.
To give you an idea of the size, the unit on the ground floor was converted to two bedrooms and was still cozy and livable. But it's def great space for one person.
