Two-bedroom apartments are usually significantly more expensive than one-bedrooms (one of the many reasons temporary walls are so popular in NYC). But in this week's Hot Dozen -- the 12 rental apartments Streeteasy.com visitors clicked on most often over the past seven days -- the two-bedrooms are fairly reasonably priced (including two without a broker's fee) and not much more than the one-bedz. So why not splurge for a bit of extra space (and maybe even a roommate to save more money)?
On the Upper West Side, a two-bedroom apartment (pictured) at 426 Amsterdam Avenue and West 80th Street is listed at $2,500/month. The building's a walk-up and the apartment has a strange not-quite-railroad-style set-up, but the rooms are relatively spacious and Central Park is so close. Plus the area is full of bars and restaurants.
In the East Village, a two-bedroom at 431 East 9th Street and Avenue A in the East Village is listed at $2,400/month and has no broker's feel. Steps from Tompkins Square Park, the apartment may be pretty tiny, but it does have laundry machines in the building and is located in the center of an always bustling neighborhood.
Further East in Alphabet City, another no-fee two-bedroom apartment at 622 East 11th Street and Avenue B is listed at $2,375 and is no fee. The apartment's attributes are as standard as they come: wood floors, white walls, and rectangular windows, but the apartment building does allow pets, which is a plus for any apartment seeker with a four-legged companion.
