FEBRUARY 26 – 101 BEDFORD IN THE NEWS – TRADE-OFFS By Hana R. Alberts

These Pricey, Pint-Sized Rentals Come
With Extravagant Extras

Small apartments are de rigueur from the West Village to the Upper West Side. But in many corners
of New York City, they can come stacked beside hundreds of other homes, of varying sizes,
in giant towers. The tinier units in these bigger buildings may be pricey—anywhere from $2,300/
month to almost $4,000—but the loads of amenities developers pack in might make the price tag
worth it. It means claustrophobic renters can escape. Sure, there are more traditional perks, like
a pool, gym, lounge, or outdoor terrace. But these days the ante is upped with extras like basketball
and bocce courts, golf simulators, wine cellars, outdoor screening rooms, and pet spas. Read
on to find the cheapest, smallest (because often those are the same thing) apartments available
in the city’s most tricked-out fancy buildings. Is the minuscule size offset by the draw of major
amenity? You decide.

The Karl Fischer-designed rental building that
swallowed an entire Williamsburg block is so
huge because it has so much stuff packed inside
it. 101 Bedford has a gym and a pool, hot tub,
sauna, steam room, and spa rooms (sure), but it
also houses a wine cellar, a game room (with a
golf simulator), a screening room, a soundproof
recording and photography studio, a business
center and conference room, a library with
fireplace, on-site parking, ATMs, and vending
machines, and a pet spa (a.k.a. a “canine-cleaning
station”). You might never need to leave once
you move in, so consider this $2,595 studio with
balcony, which is the cheapest offering at the
moment.
