You know it's not going to be cheap to rent in the North End. In one of Boston's most desirable neighborhoods, all nestled in history and along the waterfront, $2,000 gets you pretty much a 1-BR or smaller. Though, as we found in surveying what's out there at the start of this mighty summer, within those tight margins is a lot of diversity. How about a private roof deck? Or central air? Or a washer/dryer included? How about, indeed.
Let's start at 19 Fleet Street. There Unit 4, a 1-BR, 1-BA, is renting for $2,000 even. But! Tenants also pay for heat and hot water at the 700-square-foot, top-floor unit. Plus side: There's a private roof deck.
Unit 205 at 12 Greenough Lane comes with central air. The 1-BR, 1-BA also wants $2,000.
Unit 3F at 57 Salem Street comes with washer/dryer. A 1-BR, 1-BA, 606-square-foot condo that was just listed, it wants $1,900 a month.
This second-floor, 553-square-foot studio at the Mariner condo at 300 Commercial Street also just dropped. And Unit 202 also wants $1,900.
Unit 5 at 92 Prince Street is the cheapest apartment for rent right this very second in the North End: $1,750 for the 1-BR, 1-BA, 600-square-footer.
