5 tiny (but cute!) Manhattan studios for $450K or less

New, 13 comments

From Hell’s Kitchen to the Upper East Side, here are five NYC studios up for grabs right now

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, we’re focusing on studios in Manhattan asking $450,000 or less.


↑ There’s only so much you can expect from a Hell’s Kitchen apartment that’s asking just $299,000, and while this apartment is tiny, it’s actually not so bad. For starters, the studio is within a Emery Roth-designed building and has been recently renovated. It also has high ceilings and a kitchenette, and monthly maintenance is just $395. [Floorplan]

Town Residential.

↑ Another small studio is up for grabs in the Carnegie Hill section of the Upper East Side, but this one is a little bit pricier at $399,000. The home features details like exposed brick, crown molding, and hardwood floors. The kitchen isn’t the biggest but it’s large enough to cook up a decent meal and comes with a fair amount of cabinet space. [Floorplan]


↑ This bright and spacious studio on the Upper East Side was recently renovated, and is now asking $429,000. There’s a wall of windows in the living room and the sleep alcove is large enough to accommodate a king-sized bed. There’s also a large eat-in kitchen that has stainless steel appliances, a breakfast bar, and plenty of cabinets. [Floorplan]

LoHo Realty.

↑ This 500-square-foot Lower East Side studio, asking $429,000, is definitely a unique one. The living room also serves as a home office, and there are a lot of bookshelves (possibly built-ins, but it’s hard to tell). The windowed kitchen features a lengthy counter and stainless steel appliances, and the funky bathroom has bright red walls and stone tiles.

Douglas Elliman.

↑ In Lenox Hill, this no-frills 450-square-foot studio, filled with sunlight, is seeking $425,000. While the kitchen could use a makeover, the living area is spacious and there’s even a balcony. Two caveats: No dogs are allowed, and the maintenance fee is a pricey $1,021/month. [Floorplan]
