5 tiny but cute Manhattan studios for under $400,000

From Murray Hill to Hudson Heights, here’s what less than $400,000 gets you

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 studios asking under $400,000.

↑ This ground-floor studio is located in an Emery Roth-designed building in Midtown East and measures 500 square feet. It’s pretty spacious for a studio and comfortably fits a bed, a dining table, and a comfy-looking sectional couch. There’s storage space in the form of two walk-in closets, and it’s nice that the kitchen is somewhat separated from the living space. For all of that it’s $399,000 [Floorplan].

↑ This verdant Upper West Side studio is perched atop a 16-story building, and hence features plenty of light. The tiny co-op comes with beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and views of Midtown Manhattan. It’s a bit cramped but the kitchen is still slightly away from the living room. The closet space unfortunately isn’t the greatest. The building it’s in comes with a roof deck with a solarium, bike storage, and a central laundry facility. The apartment is asking $389,000 [Floorplan].

↑ This Upper East Side studio may be choc-a-bloc full of fancy appliances, but it seems to be missing a bed. Perhaps the sectional can double up as one? but if not, then this studio is in dire need of at least a sofa bed. Now back to the fancy appliances: Bose surround sound speakers, a Bosch washer/dryer, and a Liebherr refrigerator, among others. The kitchen also comes with marble countertops and under-cabinet lighting. The bathroom right next to the kitchen has a glass enclosed shower. For all of that it’s $399,000 [Floorplan].

↑ This Hudson Heights studio may sure seem like a schlepp, but it would be nice living right next to the scenic Fort Tryon Park, and the Cloisters. This corner, top-floor unit comes with hardwood floors, plenty of storage space, and a spacious eat-in kitchen. The studio is located in a pet-friendly building, that also comes with bike storage, and a laundry facility. All of that is worth $339,000 [Floorplan].

↑ This 400-square-foot Murray Hill studio packs in a lot for its space, and somehow still manages to find room for a separated kitchen, and a dressing area. Seeing as its on the eight floor, the apartment gets a good amount of light and the roof terrace for the co-op building offers views of the East River, and the newly built American Copper Buildings. For all of that, this studio wants $375,000 [Floorplan].
