Enjoy your heated indoor pool--or your toilet in the kitchen. The choice is yours.
UPPER WEST SIDE (STUDIO)
Sooooo your bed and your refrigerator are two feet away from each other. Worse things have happened. On the plus side, there’s room for what the ad calls “a normal set of furniture.” Finally!
HARLEM (1 BR)
Oh, this isn't just an apartment. It’s a freaking townhouse.
WILLIAMSBURG, BROOKLYN (1 BR)
It’s charming, cozy and there’s a whole separate room for your bed. There’s no door on it, but what are we, billionaires?
TIMES SQUARE (STUDIO)
Well, the bathroom and kitchen are an inch away from each other, but you’ll probably spend all of your time around the corner waiting in line for Hamilton tickets anyway.
REGO PARK, QUEENS (STUDIO)
You’d better get used to breezily saying, “I’ll meet you at the fitness center” and “Oh, just leave it with my doorman.”
SUNSET PARK, BROOKLYN (1 BR)
A bedroom with three windows? Sure, it’s an hour from work, but we’ve been trying to get up earlier anyway.
ASTORIA, QUEENS (STUDIO)
We could mention the parking garage, the dishwasher or fitness center. But we’re too busy losing our minds over this damn bathroom. So much marble…
EAST VILLAGE (STUDIO)
Who needs a couch when you could lounge in this extremely comfy wicker patio furniture?
BED-STUY, BROOKLYN (1 BR)
OK, it’s not actually grass, it’s green outdoor carpet. But it’s all yours. Seriously.
PARK SLOPE, BROOKLYN (STUDIO)
You had us at exposed brick. And then you had to throw in a cute little fireplace and we lost our damn minds.
THE BRONX (2 BR)
Yep, the building has an indoor heated pool. We wish we were joking. We really do.
STATEN ISLAND (3 BR)
Shut up. YOU GET THE WHOLE HOUSE. Bye, we’re moving.
