Apt Rentals NYC | The Best Apartments in the Big Apple

July 24, 2012

There's plenty of excellent apartment rentals in our beautiful, bustling New York City. But only a few can truly be considered the best as a whole package: value, neighborhood quality, interior design, landlord reviews, amenities, and more. It's our job to try to find these top apartment rentals and give to you the best possible choices. Here's the list you've been waiting for: the five absolute best apartments in the Big Apple.


5. The Madison Belvedere | 10 East 29th Street

Average Prices:

  • Studio - $3,530
  • 1 Bedroom - $3,562
  • 2 Bedroom - $5,860

We've mentioned the Madison Belvedere before, and for good reason. This is one of the most elegant, gorgeously designed, and uniformly high quality apartments in New York City. With a splendid resident's miniature park, a great view of Midtown, and a completely stocked fitness center, this hotel-quality condominium offers not only excellent rooms but an excellent community.

4. The Parkview | 108 East 96th Street

Average Prices:

  • Studio - $2,413
  • 1 Bedroom - $2,850
  • 2 Bedrooms - $3,650

The Parkview is the cheapest apartment you'll find in the best neighborhood you can live in. Located in Upper East Side, Parkview apartments start at $2,400 but have all the amenities of a much more expensive complex: a fitness center, pet friendly apartments, and a rooftop deck that could pass as its own spectacle. Fortunately for you, there's still a few spots open, so if you're looking to rent into a Premier quality apartment, book fast!

3. Park Towers South | 330 West 58th Street

Average Prices:

  • 1 Bedroom - $3,520
  • 2 Bedrooms - $4,200

Park Towers has a clean, modernistic feel to it, providing a simple apartment experience for a great price in the heart of New York: Columbus Circle. From its gigantic, brightly lit apartments, to the friendly staff and landlords, Park Towers surprises all with its hospitality and grace. 

2. 250 West 100th Street

Average Prices:

  • Studio - $1,916
  • 1 Bedroom - $2,450

250 West 100th Street ties for the highest score we've ever given on a AddressReportwebsite, with a total score of 98. Why is it so high? Three things: Location, Design, and Cost. This building has an amazing setup a block from Riverside Park on the Upper West Side, looking out over the glassy Hudson River and near the 1,2, and 3 trains; its elegant lobby, modern bathroom decor and neo-classical paintings remind one of a high-class Hilton when walking in; and most importantly, it costs a pittance to rent into. A perfect selection for the middle class renter looking for an high-class experience.

1. The Olivia | 315 West 33rd Street

Average Prices:

  • Studio - $2,909
  • 1 Bedroom - $3,381
  • 2 Bedrooms - $5,234

This is it: the best apartment rental in all of NYC. The Olivia, located in Chelsea on 33rd Street, is next to basically every subway line ever: nearby stations contain the A, C, E, 1, 2, 3, F, M, R, and L lines. Its amenities and community are absolutely amazing, with an on-site garage and valet parking, a splendid rooftop deck, laundry rooms, and a fitness center. Finally, the rooms are sprawling, with among the lowest prices per square foot in all of NYC. Plus, it has a great view to boot.
