In Manhattan’s Murray Hill neighborhood, there is this compact studio that’s been given a few upgrades and is now asking $355,000.

At 550 square feet, this $375,000 studio co-op in Prospect Lefferts Gardens is pretty spacious. The unit is on the top floor of a six-story building (don’t worry, there’s an elevator) and includes a sunken living room, a windowed kitchen with a cutout, and a white-and-black tiled bathroom. Monthly maintenance is a mere $392. [Floorplan]

Asking price is $375,000 and monthly maintenance is $927. [Floorplan]
