Sometimes the best part of an apartment rests with an element that's actually just outside of the apartment: the view. If you don't mind a sixth floor walk-up, 536 East 79th Street, Apt. 6B provides a great opportunity to live in the Upper East Side for under $1,800 each month.
While the view of the East River invites you to spend a bit of time outside on warmer days, whether you're inside or outside, this apartment's position atop the building pulls in plenty of light.
The apartment also features a separate kitchen with full-size appliances. Though there's nothing especially spectacular about the appliances, one of the perks of having full-size appliances is fairly straightforward: having full-size appliances.
If you've already been searching for a place, you may have found out the hard way that the fact that you're paying nearly $2,000 for rent each month doesn't necessarily guarantee that you'll have an oven, a full-size refrigerator, or even a stove.
Outside your window, you'll find the express bus at 79th Street, as well Carl Shurz Park and the East River Promenade. By no means is this the most spacious or glamorous apartment in the area, but overall, for $1,795 per month, there's plenty to love here.
