NYC apartment rental buildings come in many different shapes and sizes. Here is a quick overview of the different options available to renters:

Pre-war Apartments vs. Post-war Apartments
Pre-war apartments were built before World War II, or the 1940s. Typically, these buildings have hardwood floors, decorative moldings and high ceilings. These buildings also have several negatives including small elevators or stairs-only, no air-conditioning and small, cramped bathrooms. Post-war buildings have less character but modern features such as elevators, air-conditioning and in-building amenities like health clubs and pools.

Doorman vs. Non-doorman Buildings
Doorman buildings are often larger buildings that have enough tenants to pay for a full-time employee. A doorman helps tenants by accepting packages, dealing with laundry/dry-cleaning, storing spare keys and letting repairmen/guests into your apartment. Non-doorman NYC apartment rentals are less expensive and often have fewer units.

Brownstones and Townhouses
Brownstones and townhouses are three to five unit buildings, often ranging from 16 to 25 feet wide. Many of them were originally built as single family homes with basements, garden floors, parlor floors, and one to two floors of bedrooms. Today, these buildings can be rented as single family homes, duplex units, single floors and full floors with gardens. NYC apartment rentals in the top floor of these buildings often have roof access as well.
