22nd Street and 6th Ave
Price: $800
Size: 1 bed in a 2 bed, 1 bath apartment
Available: May 1 or May 15
Details: The rental room is not huge, but the current tenant says that it will fit a queen size bed, dresser and/or desk. There is a closet in the room, with additional storage space in the common living area. No need to bring a couch, because the unit already has one, along with a “pretty sweet TV.” Here’s some additional information on the roommate:

I’m a native New Yorker who’s chill and does not deal well with passive-aggressive types. But I do deal well with good food, wine and beer. And hip hop. And baseball. None of these interests are required, except maybe the food and drink part. I do own a burgeoning meat business. So there will always be good food around. Vegans are encouraged to apply, too. I can get my hands on some asparagus at the farmer’s market for you. No problem.

11th Street and Prospect Park West (Shown above)
Price: $850 + one month deposit + utilities
Size: 1 bed in a 3 bed, 1 bath apartment
Available: May 15
Details: Once again, you’re looking at a room that’s on the small side, but it will comfortably fit a full-size bed and dresser. There is a window in the room, but no closet. The living room, kitchen and bath are all common. The current residents are:

Two women in our 20s. One of us is a South Asian woman who works in advertising and enjoys good food, spending time with friends, comedy, reading, and exploring the city. The other is a white recent art history grad, currently works in higher education, and has a great cookbook collection that she enjoys using.
It’s really important to us to come home to a comfortable and friendly shared space where we can relax after our long days. We have our own friends and interests outside of this home as well. We are both strong queer allies, and welcome people who are interested in this kind of a home environment.

The exiting roommate is taking some furniture with her, so there will be room to bring in some pieces if you’re interested. You will not need to sign the lease, but they are hoping for (at least ) at six month commitment. The unit is rent stabilized, and there is laundry in the basement.
