Common, the co-living company with 25 homes in six cities across the country, just opened its first shared space in Manhattan: a renovated brownstone in Harlem. Locally, up until now the start-up has focused on the outer boroughs, where it has nine properties in Brooklyn alone.

Located in Hamilton Heights, the newest home features 11 fully furnished bedrooms, most with shared bathrooms, as well as a fully-equipped kitchen and a cozy basement lounge. The surrounding area is billed as a "central hub of history and culture in one of Manhattan’s most treasured neighborhoods." A recent Common blog post points to more local attractions.

​Renting a room at Common Hamilton starts at $1,600 and requires a credit and background check, but once you're a full-fledged member, you can choose to stay for as little as six months or as long as a year–then even transfer to another property.

The best part is that cleaning, utilities, and a host of other pesky details are taken care of by Common–including, yes, looking for a new roommate when the most recent one decides to leave.
