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 one-bedroom, one-bath co-op in an elevator building is just half a block from Central Park, and it just hit the market asking $519,000. (Multiply that price by 229 and you get what it costs to buy the city's most expensive property, which also listed this week for $119 million.) It's on 98th Street just east of Fifth Avenue, which StreetEasy dubs the northern border of "Upper Carnegie Hill," but it's really East Harlem, though the prewar lobby gives off an undeniable Upper East Side vibe. Amenities include a laundry room, a communal garden used for private parties, a live-in super, and a bike room. Perk: if you get into an accident riding your bike in the park, Mount Sinai Hospital is literally across the street.
