New, 2 comments

See what $700,000 buys in neighborhoods like Greenwich Village, Williamsburg, and the Upper West Side

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 and exploring what $700,000 buys around the city.


↑ In Windsor Terrace, a two-bedroom co-op is on the market for $699,000. The apartment is one of the largest in the Art Deco prewar building, and comes with recently refinished wood floors, 10-foot ceilings, crown molding, French doors, and a storage locker in the building’s basement. The top-floor apartment gets lots of sun, and also has access to a shared courtyard. Monthly maintenance runs $743. [Floorplan]

Qwest Residential

↑ $698,000 buys a two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op in Jackson Heights. The apartment has been recently renovated and comes with a new kitchen with Viking stainless steel appliances and stone countertops, and bathrooms with grey subway tile and updated fixtures. A screened-in terrace off of the kitchen is an extra perk. Monthly maintenance is $1,145. [Floorplan]

↑ Located just half a block from Central Park on the Upper West Side, this one-bedroom apartment is seeking $699,000. The apartment’s most notable feature is its 80-square-foot terrace off of the bedroom, followed by a few high-tech upgrades like surround sound with zoned control and Sanyo central ductless split air conditioning. Laundry can be found in the basement, as can the apartment’s deeded storage unit. Monthly maintenance is $1,080. [Floorplan]

Citi Habitats

↑ High up in a new-ish building in Forest Hills, a one-bedroom condo is looking for a new owner. The sunny space comes with a washer and dryer, granite kitchen countertops, and a marble-tiled bathroom. The listing also notes that the building comes with parking, though that probably costs extra. It’s on the market for $699,000 and taxes and maintenance come up to $765/month.


↑ A double-height loft in Williamsburg that the listing touts is “customized by one of NY’s top interior designers” comes with a washer and dryer, central air, and a custom kitchen with Carrera marble counters and a Bosch dishwasher. The loft, on the market for $699,000 with monthlies of $232 through 2031, also comes with access to a shared rooftop terrace. [Floorplan]

↑ A 600-square-foot Greenwich Village co-op has been cleverly updated to maximize space and light with a frosted glass-walled bedroom and built-ins in the entry hallway. The kitchen has been updated with Corian countertops, and recessed lighting and white maple floors have been installed throughout the apartment. It’s on the market for $698,000 and monthlies run $1,396. [Floorplan]
