Central Park West may be home to some of the most exclusive buildings in Manhattan—the Dakota, 15 Central Park West, and the San Remo among them—but you don't have to be a bajillionaire to live on that edge of the park. Don’t believe us? This one-bedroom apartment is proof: The cozy pad, located in a pre-war co-op between 82nd and 83rd Streets, has a small kitchen, high ceilings, and plenty of closet space. It also has a relatively modest asking price of $525,000 (maintenance is $1,122).
But it’s also not without its quirks: There’s no real windows in the bedroom, but there is a skylight; it’s also a first-floor unit, but it’s closer to the back of the building, so there’s at least no real foot traffic to worry about. Those are almost certainly going to be deal-breakers for some people, but for those who care more about location than, um, windows, this could be a great deal.
