The petite one-bedroom comes with partial views of the East River

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.

Cul-de-sacs are the stuff of suburbia and pick-up sports ball games, and not something associated with Manhattan. And that's precisely why this listing for a one-bedroom on a 72nd Street cul-de-sac so darn charming. The apartment is in a building at the end of the street—yes, right near the FDR—on a cul-de-sac that overlooks the East River. The apartment reappeared on the market this afternoon for $575,000, but an older and still active listing for the property pegs its price tag at $569,000.

The building at 535 East 72nd Street was designed in 1938 by Carmel Snow, the editor of Harper's Bazaar, and the co-op in question sports interiors by Marco Battistotti. The "zen-like" design incorporates eastern and wester elements, and includes bamboo finishes.
