What $400K buys in NYC right now

New, 7 comments

From the Upper West Side to Crown Heights, here’s what you can get for under $400,000

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’s task: apartments asking $400,000 or less.


↑In Crown Heights, a three-bedroom co-op is going for $400,000. The highlights within the apartment include a modest-sized living room, a windowed kitchen with a washer/dryer, and plenty of natural light throughout. The unit is an HDFC co-op, so there are some income restrictions in place, along with a rule that the buyer must live in the apartment as their primary residence. [Floorplan]


↑For $399,990, there is this prewar one-bedroom on the Upper East Side, featuring hardwood floors, exposed brick, and floor-to-ceiling windows that overlook the building’s courtyard. The kitchen has a bit of an awkward layout but offers a fair amount of cabinet space and there are two closets for storage. Maintenance goes for $1,011/month. [Floorplan]

↑A mere $124,999 can buy this fully revamped one-bedroom co-op that comes with shiny wood floors, a large living room, a small but modern kitchen, and a sizable bedroom. The apartment, located in the Williamsbridge section of the Bronx, has plenty of windows that allow for an abundance of natural light and monthly maintenance is set at $778.

↑This Upper West Side studio is tiny, but one major perk is that it’s located along Central Park West, so the park is within close proximity. The co-op, asking $389,000, resides within an Emery Roth-designed building and is flourished with nine-foot-high beamed ceilings, a Murphy bed, and built-in storage space. The kitchen is a bit dated but offers all of the essentials and there are two closets for storage. [Floorplan]

↑ This massive one-bedroom in Jackson Heights comes with large windows that fill it with light, oak hardwood floors, recessed lighting in the living room, and a newly installed Bosch dishwasher in the kitchen. The apartment is part of Dunnolly Gardens, one of the many lovely co-op complexes in the neighborhood that come with lush interior gardens. For all of that, this apartment is asking $399,000.
