Displaced by Sandy? Try a $27,000/month rental

The folks at Streeteasy.com have created a section on their website where residents displaced by last week’s storm can find short-term rentals. However, some of the available listings are better suited to a more well-heeled crowd, as Curbed noted.

An Upper East Side townhouse at 407 East 75th Street that once belonged to photographer Richard Avedon, and later housed former French president Nicolas Sarkozy’s brother, can be rented for three months to the tune of $225,000. If a would-be tenant’s regular home won’t be habitable for some time, the property can be purchased for a cool $12.5 million.

For those looking for a temporary downtown residence, there’s a $27,000-per-month four-bedroom rental at 145 Sixth Avenue in Soho, listed with Nestseekers International. The home measures 3,000 square feet and has floors made of pulverized mother of pearl and cement.

Streeteasy has a total of 147 listings for those displaced by Sandy, and there are cheaper options as well. The least expensive is a $1,150 rental at 1451 Prospect Avenue in the Bronx, which has two bedrooms and one bathroom. The second cheapest listing is a $1,199 apartment available at a Riverdale co-op at 6535 Broadway, which has one bedroom and one bathroom. [Curbed]Zachary Kussin
