Lady Gaga's NYC Apartment Is For Rent For $2,000 A Month β€” Is It Worth It?

The power this apartment has.

Long ago, in the mid-2000s, there was a girl named Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta.

It isn't related to anything in this article, but I'm sure she'd want you to know...she's Italian.

Stef lived in the Lower East Side, where she worked open mic nights trying to catch her big break.

Then, she met Bill Gates* and changed his life forever.

Anyway, back to reality, Lady Gaga lived in 76 Stanton Street in Manhattan's Lower East Side neighborhood right before she hit it big.

She apparently lived there when she was writing her debut album, The Fame.

And now, the apartment is up for rent again.

Gaga's old apt is for rent again! It's $2,000/ mo. on Stanton St. I think she was paying $1100 back in 05-07.

The apartment is on the market for $2,000 a month*.

It's actually $1,692 net effective rent because they're offering two months free. That means for your first year, you are paying $1,692 a month, but after that it's probably back to $2,000 a month. This whole "net effective" thing is big in NYC right now.

The highlights from the listing include: "Soaring 10-foot ceilings, open kitchen w/ STAINLESS STEEL appliances, windowed bath with full TUB, recessed lighting and inlaid wood flooring throughout."

As someone who has lived in NYC apartments for well over a decade, let me tell you: There is actually zero counter space here because you'll have to put a dish rack there because there is no dishwasher.

That skylight is very nice, though*!

*But it makes me worried for the 4th of July when everyone (illegally) goes on the roof to watch fireworks. I'd be worried someone would fall in and/or scare the hell out of me in the middle of the night.

The floating fridge is also a choice, but totally fine*.

*Living with a fridge in your living room is a way of life.

The bedroom has two nice-sized windows. I see a fire escape, too.

Could definitely fit a queen.

The closet is normal. It looks like that's your only closet in the entire apartment, so that thing will be jammed full.

You can see the bathroom in a video tour, which actually has a window. Let me tell you, a windowed bathroom is rare*.

*It probably faces an alley where multiple pigeon families reside and shit on air conditioners all day.

Overall, $2,000 or $1,600 and change for a year isn't actually so bad.

Honestly, with an apartment like this, you're paying for the neighborhood. It's close to tons of bars and restaurants that I'm sure will be LIT when everyone gets the vaccine. It's down the street from one of my least favorite areas, Hell Square, but this apartment in particular is on a pretty quiet block!

Gaga goes back to the apartment semi-regularly.

It's a place she randomly makes pilgrimages to.

So yeah, maybe if you move in, Gaga will show up like some sort of Santa Claus in the night.
