Ok, this Listing of the Day is in one of those really pretty buildings in Van Cortlandt Village. The nabe is nice (even if a little far from transportation) and this unit comes with serious amenities: FREE gym, garage, laundry on each floor of the building, a rec room, and sun deck for the spring and summer. The listing even offers a $500 deduction on the first month's rent and no broker's fee.
Oh yeah, and you'd also be super-close to Van Cortlandt Park.
There is a small caveat that two bedrooms in this building must go to families or shares. So a single guy with his Star Wars collection couldn't get this place. They also want 40x the rent (combined), so that means you and your significant other or roommate (combined) would need to grab north of $62K to qualify.
If you do qualify and are in the market for a two bedroom it makes sense to take a look. It's hard to find these amenities elsewhere in the Bronx, or even the whole City for this price.
Transportation is a little iffy. You could go east and take the 4 at Mosholu Parkway and Jerome Avenue, or go west across the Major Deegan to get the 1 train at 238th Street.
