Your choices for housing in New York City are abundant when looking for a short-term rental apartment. For a stay that is more than a month but less than one year, you want the flexibility, the furnishings, and the simplicity of being able to move in and move out quickly.

Corporate housing can look a bit drab, Airbnbs start to get pricey after the second week, and as much as living in a hotel like Eloise sounds like the dream, you want something that will feel like a home for your time in NYC.

Enter the best short-term rentals in NYC furnished by Blueground.

From starting the day with a few laps in the building’s private indoor pool to capping off the week with a drink on the roof, these are the best furnished NYC apartments you can rent from month to month.
