Affordable NYC Listings New NYC Rentals for $2K or Less

One Under Two

Though New York City's rental market may not be at its most brutal, the city's leases will probably always gobble a big portion of our income. If you're diligent, though, you can find apartments in your favorite neighborhoods that don't break the bank–and aren't glorified closets or depressing dumps. Below is a sampling of recently-listed, bigger-than-a-studio rental finds for $2,000 per month or less.

1240 Bedford Avenue, #6C - $2,000/month

2 beds, 2 baths 

This sunny "penthouse level" one-bedroom condo unit on the super-trendy border between Bed-Stuy and Clinton Hill starts off on the right foot with an elevator and laundry. Add a new renovation, two outdoor spaces and a roof deck with great views and we're seeing why those sunflowers look so happy. Even better: it's available furnished if you like.

Affordable Upper East Side can be done if you're willing to hunt: This newly-renovated Yorkville pad has good closet space, and it's a quick walk to Carl Schurz Park and the shiny new Q.

Literally 2 blocks away from the 7 train in the food-centric Jackson Heights neighborhood, this just-listed renovated apartment measures 800 square feet with updated kitchen appliances and pre-war features like high ceilings and hardwood floors. Heat & hot water also included!

439 Knickerbocker Avenue, #2E - $2,000/month

1 bed, 1 bath 

Another Bushwick bargain (no fee!), this new-construction apartment offers large rooms, lots of light, central heat and A/C and a communal roof deck. It's near the subway, too.

If you're a brownstone fan, this one's all about location. And the price is right for a recently-renovated, good-sized one-bedroom in a great north Slope location near Prospect Park. We're guessing it's a high floor walk-up, but then again...treetop views!
