We start with a Bed-Stuy sandstone unit that offers almost all the best apartment amenities you could wish for. With two bedrooms and two full bathrooms, it would be perfect for roommates who want to live this quarantine winter in shared luxury. Admire the fully loaded habit of your seat at the spacious breakfast bar. If the huge windows of the apartment with two displays don’t give enough natural light for your Zoom meetings, you can always go out to the balcony – or up to the roof deck! There is also a washer / dryer in the unit, so no freezing trips to the laundry. Listed by Lois Thompson and Khayla Jones of Compass.
If you prefer to keep your outdoor space to yourself, check out this small but powerful study in Bushwick. The highlight here is a floor-to-ceiling wall of windows overlooking a green private terrace, giving a serious “secret garden”. What a view to have when it snows! A dishwasher and dishwasher will also help aggravate your daily routine, and the appliance even comes with its own parking space. The landlord offers one month free with a 12-year lease that lowers the rent to $ 1,937; contact list agent John Fagan of Doorkee for details.
Here is another 2-bed / 2-bath sandstone with laundry, this time in Central Harlem. This beautiful unit is the ground floor level hall of a town hall from 1910, and has a similar deadly pre-war detail. The inlaid hardwood floors of the living room and panel are simply fabulous, as is that complex (but sadly non-functional) fireplace. Other elements – such as the kitchen’s sleek flat front cabinets and stainless steel appliances – have been beautifully updated. Listed by Roger Dunkelbarger of Bohemian Property.
Our second downtown Harlem gem has some of the best housing amenities to avoid crowds during quarantine. Free indoor parking, in-unit laundry and a half-bath for guests will keep you socially remote in style. The duplex unit has 900 square feet of space also to spread out, not to mention a private backyard. And the kitchen has everything you need to cook as you please, including a dishwasher. Rent is effectively based on two months free; contact list agent Beatriz Moitinho by Keller Williams for details.
If the words “Chelsea City Hall” don’t interest you about this apartment, here are two more: a functional fireplace. There is no better winter pleasure! Even watching Netflix with a take away can feel like an event with roaring fire, ski cottages, and lots of showy bricks. But if you want to cook, the kitchen is decorated with full-size stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher. And the location is really prime, on a tree-lined block right next door the High Line. Listed by George Agiovlasito.
One fireplace is great in winter, of course, but how about two? This pair of Brooklyn Heights working fireplaces means you’ll have a comfortable warmth, whether you’re staying in the living room or the bedroom. There is plenty of space, with a renovated kitchen and bathroom. And the location means that when you’re ready to go out and face the elements, you’ll have plenty of options nearby, including Brooklyn Bridge Park. Listed by Chris Giunta of CG Property.
Long Island City
La Delmar is a luxurious Long Island City building that has really stopped all stops. Its amazing amenities include a high-quality gymnasium, two landscaped roof decks with stunning horizontal views, and even a projection room for social distance movies. This 2-bedroom unit has a stainless steel kitchenette with a dishwasher, an indoor sink and built-in bluetooth speakers so you can light up while you cook and clean.
