Five apartments, five NYC neighborhoods, all under $500,000

Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent or buy for a certain dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Today, we’ve found five apartments within $10,000 of today’s price: $425,000.

First up is this 550-square-foot co-op, located within a townhouse along West 107th Street on the Upper West Side. After a full renovation, the apartment features an open kitchen with stainless steel appliances, refinished oak floors, a cozy bedroom with built-in shelving, a full bathroom, a powder room, and a living/dining room with double glass doors that lead to the apartment’s Juliet balcony. Asking price is $425,000 and monthly maintenance is $600. [Floorplan]

In Jackson Heights, $429,000 can get you this two-bedroom co-op that measures 850 square feet. The corner unit consists of a decent-sized living room with natural light seeping in, a windowed galley kitchen, a small dining room, and five closets throughout. Maintenance will cost you $873/month. [Floorplan]

On the Upper East Side, a small but nicely laid-out one-bedroom is asking $425,000. For that, you get a renovated kitchen with new appliances (including a dishwasher), a queen-sized bedroom, and two closets. The apartment is located on the second floor of a co-op building, with maintenance fees of $876/month. [Floorplan]

A small but recently revamped studio in Tudor City is going for $429,000. The owners, who renovated the space, “felt as if they were privy to the ‘secret handshake,’ one of the last remaining hidden gems of Manhattan,” according to the brokerbabble. (And to be fair, Tudor City buildings are pretty cool.) This particular space has a sleek Murphy bed and new windows; on the downside, the newly upgraded kitchen is also tiny. [Floorplan]

And finally, in Spuyten Duyvil, a spacious two-bedroom condo with tons of closet space is asking $425,000. A long foyer (with a closet) leads to a sunken living room, which is flanked on either side by a large bedroom and a kitchen with a separate dining area. There are two bathrooms, lots of windows, and plenty of space. The building is a 10-minute walk from the Spuyten Duyvil Metro-North stop. [Floorplan]
