Manhattan Skyline Apartments | The Best Views in Manhattan

July 23, 2012

Some Manhattan apartments have a real struggle trying to find their niche in the wide world of apartment rentals. Maybe they're too small to be worth a look (isn't that right, mr. moneybags?), or their neighborhood is a total mess (yet gentrifying quickly!). Or maybe the landlord for that building is a tactless SOB. Fortunately, the buildings listed below fall into none of the categories above.

The Claridge's and West River House offer the complete package in NYC rentals: they're affordable, charming, and possess some of the best views of the Manhattan skyline. Read on to learn more about two amazing apartment rentals that you'll definitely want to consider if you're on the hunt for a new home in New York City.

The Claridge's | 101 West 55th Street

The Claridge's possesses the best combination of location and style that we've seen in a condominium in a while. It's on the corner of 55th and 6th, overlooking a variety of nightlife, with theaters, clubs, and neon signs surrounding the building; if you're looking for a bustling Midtown apartment, this is a perfect fit. Nothing is sacrificed in the interior decorations, as the apartments contain a clean, modern look with spacious hardwood flooring, large windows and a small fireplace. However, the most surprising thing about this apartment is the price: for $3,500, you can get an enormous single bedroom in the heart of Manhattan, a great value for some of the most in-demand real estate on the market. This building comes in with a Premier rating, the highest category we can place it in.

Average Prices:

  • 1 Bedroom - $3,452
  • 2 Bedrooms - $6,996

West River House | Best View in Manhattan

West River House, at 424 West End Avenue, in the Upper West Side, has some of the most spectacular views of Manhattan from its gorgeous rooftop deck.

Furthermore, West River House features a fitness center, a resident's garden, an on-site parking garage, and a general lounge for residents. What more could you possible want?
