Upper East Side Duplex Packs In Bedrooms, Garden, and Charm

New, 8 comments

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.


This sweet little co-op, asking $995,000, is on the Upper (very) East Side. That is, in the historic sub-neighborhood of Yorkville—specifically, on 88th Street between York and East End avenues. So it's practically in the river, but in the "pro" column: two bedrooms; two bathrooms; five closets; a pretty back garden; a renovated open kitchen; a bonus home office on the main level; and an bonus sitting room on the basement level. Sure, the place is narrow. And that bottom level can't get that much light. But know that Carl Schurz Park has more than just a great dog run, which'll have to do since the five-story building doesn't allow canine occupants. It's getting harder and harder to find a Manhattan apartment south of 96th Street for less than $1 million, so does this count as a decent option?
