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.


When a cute cottage within the five boroughs costs less than affordable one-bedroom apartments, it's definitely worth a closer look. This 3BR/2BA gem is in the quaint enclave of City Island, where less than 5,000 New Yorkers reside and life has historically revolved around the water—and still does, to some extent, seeing as how the brokerbabble for 422 Minnieford Avenue touts that it's "spitting distance to beach, shopping, restaurants & Yacht Club." Built in 1920, the interiors still boast some cute details, like a gas fireplace surrounded by built-in cabinets, arched doorways, and old-fashioned tile floors. The best part is the ask: $489,000. Come on, doesn't all that make you want to be a musselsucker?
