What $400,000 buys in NYC right now

New, 3 comments

See what $400,000 or less buys in neighborhoods like Brooklyn Heights, Sunnyside, and Carnegie Hill

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that usually explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Today, we’re switching things up a little to and exploring what $400,000 buys around the city.

Citi Habitats

Brooklyn Heights isn’t known for housing priced below the millions, but it can be found. Example: This spacious one-bedroom corner co-op, on the market for $375,000. The corner living room is extra sunny, and the window over the updated kitchen’s sink is a nice amenity. The bedroom isn’t a closet, either, and will fit a queen-sized bed and other furniture comfortably. The major drawback? Monthly maintenance runs $1,605. [Floorplan]

Re/Max in The City

↑ Housing dollars go a long way in the Bronx neighborhood of Spuyten Duyvil, where a one-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op is asking $289,900. The apartment’s been spiffed up with marble tile in the bathroom and new light fixtures, but it does fall short in the kitchen. That said, the apartment’s an unusually roomy 875 square feet and comes with a decent amount of storage. Maintenance is $868/month. [Floorplan]


↑ In Windsor Terrace, $399,000 buys a one-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op in an elevator building. The apartment’s major perks are its window in every room, bathroom included, and its corner master bedroom that will fit a king-sized bed and then some. A foyer and coat closet separate the entrance from the apartment’s main living area. Maintenance here runs $515/month. [Floorplan]

Keller Williams Queens Home Team

↑ A charming one-bedroom in Sunnyside comes with all the on-trend fixins’ like a reclaimed wood wall in the living room, a subway tile backsplash in the updated kitchen, and black hardware including a rain shower head in the bathroom. An entry hallway separates the living area from the kitchen and provides one of the apartment’s rare closets. It’s on the market for $349,000, and monthly maintenance runs $777.

↑ In Park Slope, $390,000 buys a studio with a separate kitchen (originally listed for $425,000.) There’s not much to brag about here but the location, in a full-service Art Deco elevator building that’s just one block from Prospect Park. The kitchen and bathroom could use an update, but the apartment’s generous closet space is a plus. Maintenance here is $826/month. [Floorplan]

↑ This “painstakingly renovated” studio in Carnegie Hill is looking for $399,000. The listing says the apartment’s kitchen and bathroom have been recently updated, and a Murphy bed has been installed near the entrance. The exposed brick wall, high ceilings, and recessed lighting are stand outs. Maintenance is $981/month. [Floorplan]
