This one-bedroom at 35-05 72nd Street in Jackson Heights looks like a good buy to us at $195,000, especially when viewed against what a similarly sized (850 square foot) prewar apartment would cost you in some other parts of town. The apartment has a ton of charm and original architectural detail and a reasonable monthly maintenance of $813. It costs less than a comparable apartment in the historic district with a shared garden, but it’s closer to the express trains. It’s on the third floor and has lots of closets as well as an eat-in kitchen. What’s not to like!

This Astoria rental apartment comes from a brick townhouse located at 20-53 47th Street, on the eastern edge of the neighborhood. The interior of the two bedroom looks like a nice, very typical rental. It’d be helpful to see some photos of the actual bedrooms, though. The rent of $1,950 a month is sure to […]
