Not every New Yorker needs a sprawling pad in a glassy tower. Many of us appreciate cozy spaces a little closer to the ground. If you love ogling homes that feel quintessentially “New York”, you have to check out this colorful apartment located at 57 West 93rd Street. Perfect for a family of three or four, this wonderful 2BR/2BA sits on a leafy street just off Central Park West, and, quite rare for Manhattan, it’s in a kid-friendly neighborhood to boot.
Up for rent, 4A’s open floorplan will come in handy if a little one is running around, as will the personal laundry room, building elevator, and bike storage. The apartment also has plenty of windows that overlook four exposures.
Throughout the home are fun pops of color, including the red cabinet knobs and rainbow tiled border in the kitchen, bright red wall in the living room, and funky bedroom throw pillows. Pre-war details like moldings, detailed hardwood floors, and high ceilings add a charming feel to the space, too.
In addition to the tasteful collection of standard furniture pieces which make up the home, whoever rents 4A will also get a chance to tickle the ivories on the living room piano.
Love the space? It’s renting for just $4,200 a month!
