240 East 27th Street
I love 240 East 27th Street. The lobby has been recently updated plus you get big apartments, lots of closets and lots of space for the price. It doesn’t have much in the way of character and charm, but it’s a great value.
For an updated kitchen, you will pay about $300* more, but the basic white on white kitchens are new and clean. Also, if you aren’t sure how long you’ll be sticking around NYC, Equity Residential has property all over the country so if need be, they’ll get you into one of their other buildings.
Pros: great light, lots of space, good prices, renovated lobby and hallways, gym
