So so so many times, people ask us where the affordable apartments are?the ones where you don't need to run a hedge fund just to be able to scare up a down payment. Well, here's one! Writes a Curbed reader: "Can you guys help me sell my 1 bedroom in Yonkers? Prices are too reasonable and nobody knows about these bargains!" Ah yes, Yonkers, that part of Westchester that's not quite Bronxville, not quite Scarsdale. Say what you want about the 'burbs, but is this the closest one can get to the city for, yes, $99,000? The 1BR, 1BA co-op, according to the owner, is 700 square feet of first-floor living. It's located in the Park Hill section of Yonkers, and on a clear evening you can catch a glimpse of the George Washington Bridge. Building amenities include an outdoor parking space (there's a waiting list for the indoor garage), laundry room, storage facilities, brand new lobby and superintendent on premises. Just five minutes from the Yonkers Metro-North station and the water taxi, for all your rail- or water-based commuting needs. And, again, $99,000 (if you can muster board approval). This appears to be the listing, and it looks like the place has been cleared out since the photos above were taken.
