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.
A ground-floor East Village apartment is a hard sell, and the pricing history of this (kind-of-illegal) one-bedroom proves it. StreetEasy says the apartment on 9th Street between avenues B and C last sold in 2013 for $849,000, and returned to the market in 2015 asking $1.15 million. The 813-square-foot digs are now asking $900,000. Sure, it's not great that the bedroom is underground and has no windows or closet, or that the scores of people walking down the block have a bird's-eye view into the apartment, but it does have its redeeming factors like a washer and dryer, and even a little sliver of outdoor space.
