This $460,000 West 56th Street One-Bedroom Is ... Something

New, 10 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.

Well, there's definitely a reason (more than one, actually) that this apartment, a one-bedroom co-op in Midtown West asking only $460,000, is so cheap. Let's start with a quick rundown. Floors: tile throughout. Windows: two in the bedroom, around half of one in the living room. Painted wall murals: most definitely, although their precise location is not entirely clear. Living room curtains framing something that looks like a window but is definitely not a window: yup.

And if this place wasn't confusing enough, there's the cryptic brokerbabble: "The reasonably sized living room space can fix anything that you have." Is the living room magic? If any living room is magic, it could be this living room. (Perhaps more importantly, is it reasonably sized?) There's also this paragraph about the kitchen: "The special feature of this apartment including marble tiles in the kitchen I'm decorated wall. It was painted by a talented artist." The identity of the artist, and what exactly he or she painted, remain a mystery, like most everything about this apartment.
