Living In An $1,850/Month Loft in Yonkers, NY | Unlocked

Denise Francis, 27, lives in a 1-bedroom loft apartment in Yonkers, NY and pays $1,850 a month in rent. Since graduating from college, Denise had been saving up to move out of the two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn where she lived her whole life. "This Brooklyn girl ended up in Yonkers because this had all the things that I needed: the complete loft upstairs, the different rooms and more than enough space," she says.
Unlocked is a new home tour series focused on how much people across the U.S. spend on their housing, what they get for the money and what they had to sacrifice to make it happen.

    bella reidbella reid20 kun oldin
  • Interesting. I actually would’ve thought it was a lot more expensive than that based on how people talk about New York. I would’ve thought a place like this would be like $3000 a month, even being a 1 bedroom. I live in Houston and you really need about $1800 for a good chance at getting a decent 3 bedroom. Honestly maybe more like $2000 now. There’s houses/apartments listed for cheaper but they’re almost impossible to get.
