Renting a studio apartment in Albany, NY
The bad news is that the hip neighborhoods are typically not the places to look for truly affordable homes for rent, and Albany, NY is no exception. That is unless you are willing to give up the (real or imagined) benefits of multiple rooms and experience the minimalist simplicity of a small apartment located smack dab in the middle of the action. Leaf through 25 listings with a total of 49 units, and you’ll be sure to find at least a couple of cheap studios that will make you wonder whether having one or two extra rooms is really worth the difference in price and commute time. Already a fan of living small? Why don’t you check out our selection of one room apartments—there’s always a better deal out there, you just have to know where to look for it (Delaware Area is the cheapest neighborhood in town—wink wink).
They are called efficiency apartments for a reason
