Fancy an apartment with a skylight? A skylight is one of those features you’d probably never put on your list of must-haves, or even nice-to-haves, but once we plant that seed in your mind you won’t be able to get rid of the feeling that you absolutely need a skylight. Well, here it is! This one bedroom, one bathroom, multi-family in Williamsburg is on the market for $2,600 right now. “This one comes with a really cool skylight, an enormous eat-in kitchen and a California King Size bedroom”, says Hila Peled, exclusive agent for this listing.

High Ceilings And Outdoor Space

If your budget is around $3,000 and you’ve always wanted to live in Bedford-Stuyvesant, a neighborhood that is also lovingly referred to as Bed-Stuy by its Brooklyn residents, Hila’s got you covered. “This beautiful apartment features high ceilings, private outdoor spaces and washer/dryer hookups”, she tells us. And she isn’t exaggerating when she says ‘high ceilings’. 12 foot ceilings make this place feel even more airy and spacious, not to mention the exposed brick!

With all their amenities, the airy, large rooms, and an abundance of outdoor space, these apartments are truly magnificent.”

Exclusive Park Access

New York wouldn’t be New York if there weren’t places you can’t get into, like that hot new club or the rooftop that has a strict dress code. So it’s no surprise that New York City’s first planned neighborhood, Gramercy Park, requires an actual key to get into its namesake park. With the purchase of Apartment 14H at 60 Gramercy Park North, you can do just that.

You’ll receive a golden key in the mail, that will gain you access to this mysterious, exclusive park right in the middle of this more than desirable neighborhood… OK, now we’re exaggerating. You probably get the key upon purchase. However, 14H has more selling points. Exclusive agent Phillip Salem gives us the full scoop:

“It is a massive 1 Bed, 1.5 Bath apartment with totally unubstructed city views in every single room! It is inviting, bright, and totally gut-renovated while maintaining its pre-war charm.”

Gut-renovated And Stunning
