From Hudson Heights to the East Village, here’s what $500,000 buys in the borough

Welcome to a semi-regular feature, Price Points, in which we pick a relatively low asking price and a type of apartment, then scour StreetEasy to find the best available options around the city. Today's task: Manhattan one-bedrooms asking $500,000 or less.

↑ Located in the Beekman section of Midtown East, this apartment is located just a short walk away from the East River waterfront. The co-op spans 600 square feet and comes with beamed ceilings, a tiled backsplash and granite counters in the kitchen, and a marble windowed bathroom. The apartment also comes with three closets, including one walk-in closet. A major drawback here however is the tiny bedroom, which can only fit a full size bed. For all of that this place is asking $495,000 [Floorplan].

↑ Located on the second floor of a five-story walk-up building in the East Village, this tiny one-bedroom features tall ceilings, exposed brick, a decorative fireplace, and solid oak floors, among other features. The kitchen is fitted with stainless steel appliances, and the unit comes with a microwave, dishwasher, and a washer/dryer. The standout feature though is probably the sliding glass door that separates the bedroom and the rest of the apartment. For all of that this place wants $495,000. [Floorplan]

↑ Located just a short walk away from the iconic Little Red Lighthouse (under the George Washington Bridge) this Hudson Heights one-bedroom comes with river views, and is fitted with hardwood floors, three closets (including two in the bedroom),and plenty of cabinet space in the kitchen. The co-op is asking $375,000. [Floorplan]

↑ Located between West 138th and 139th Streets on Lenox Avenue in Harlem, this one-bedroom is one of the penthouse units of a five-story condo. As a result it comes with over nine-foot-tall ceilings, Mahogany-stained oak floors, large windows, and a small private terrace. In addition, residents in the building have access to a gym and a media room. For all of that you need to shell out $499,000. [Floorplan]

↑ Sitting right across from the United Nations Headquarters building in the Turtle Bay section of Midtown East, this co-op asking $495,000 is airy, light-filled, and pretty spacious for the price. The building it’s in comes with a gym, a bike room, and a rooftop terrace with views of the East River. [Floorplan]
