A few months ago I was searching for luxury apartments, and I came across different prospects to rent.Some of them where really big and comfortable, but after some research I realized I could rent a studio apartment which was just as big as a one bedroom apartment.
I found a 500 SQFT. studio located at 150 W 51st Street for the price of $ 2700/month, while a one bedroom apartment in the same building is $3400/month and only 50SQFT. bigger.
So that´s when I decided it would be great to move to a studio with my boyfriend and still have enough space to live and not be tripping over each other.
To give you an example, the biggest apartments are in Manhattan and the most luxurious ones I found are in Midtown East. An area which will always be considered as the best in all Manhattan (IMHO).
One of these apartments was located on Park Avenue, a huge 3000 SQFT studio with two baths, for the eccentric price of $16250/month.
This studio is almost the same size as a luxury 3 bed, 3.5 bath apartment located at 50 United Nations Plaza which would cost $27000.
Here, not only will you find the most spacious and nicest apartments, but also they are located in the best area.
Top restaurants, shops and designer stores are all around. This neighborhood is a must if you appreciate beauty and comfort.
But, to my surprise, I found another location which is not so expensive, and you can still find great apartments for rent.
I´m referring to River Place located at 650 West 42nd Street. https://www.riverplacenyc.com/new-york-apartments-availabilities
What is River Place? A building which offers its residents luxury apartments.
Its spacious units feature hardwood flooring, integrated kitchens with stainless steel appliances and beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline and waterfront. And, it is strategically located just a few minutes away from Midtown Manhattan.
It also comes with a wide number of amenities such as: children´s playroom, indoor swimming pool, Shuttle bus, basketball and tennis courts, lounge spaces and a very interesting health, wellness and fitness center.
Residents can also enjoy the outdoor living spaces like: park with picnic tables, enclosed dog run, sundeck, and children´s playground.
Residence 22 at River Place is a studio apartment with a living area of 18´8´´ x 11´´ SQFT. And you can immediately rent it for: $ 2890.
This is, in my opinion, a good opportunity for those who are searching for comfort and luxury at reasonable prices.
