New York Rental: East Village One-Bedroom With Terrace, $2,000

east village apartment for rentThe East Village is one of New York's young, hip and bustling neighborhoods. This one bedroom, one bathroom apartment is a block from Union Square, which means you can be the first person at the farmers market or you can head to a local favorite -- the Coffee Shop --for one of the best mojitos in New York City.

Having outdoor space in New York City is a luxury, because there are those nice days you would like to sit privately outdoors and have a cup of coffee and with this terraced apartment you can do just that. Unique details within the apartment, and a neighborhood with plenty to do, make this East Village rental a promising find.

What makes it an even better is that the price is 35 percent less than the average for a one-bedroom in the area.

Not all one-bedroom, one-bathrooms are alike -- especially in a city infamous for showers in the kitchen -- and this apartment off Union Square has some great amenities. The average price for a one bedroom in this neighborhood is $2,877, which makes this look like a good deal. But don't think the lower price means you have to sacrifice. This apartment has lots of light and a fireplace in the living room. The terrace is off the living room, which to get to you have to climb a few wooden stairs -- consider it another charming detail of this apartment.

Union Square famously has a large park placed in the middle with lots to do around it: a great movie theater, many restaurants, a Barnes & Noble and lots of little shops. It's also close to the subway; there are plenty of options to get you around the city, with your choice of several express and local lines. And there are many bus routes near this central hub as well.

One of the best things about living in this neighborhood, as real estate agents often say, is location, location, location. Not only is the park nearby, but a short walk takes you to the West Village or the Meatpacking District. Head south on Broadway and you are in SoHo, or head north up Park Avenue and you're in the Flatiron District with more parks and the increasingly famous Shake Shack. It is a charming neighborhood with lots of little shops to discover and if you decide on this apartment, it's all outside your door.
