From Hell’s Kitchen to Fort Greene, here’s what you have to choose from

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 $450,000 or less.

↑ This studio in Lenox Hill measures a relatively generous 520 square feet, and is part of a 13-story co-op building. Some clever designing has helped separate the living room from the sleeping area, which can fit a king size bed, according to the broker on the listing. The kitchen here comes equipped with stainless steel appliances, marble countertops, and a dishwasher. Residents in the building also have access to a gym and laundry. For all of that, this apartment is asking $449,000 [Floorplan]

↑ In Inwood, this spacious one-bedroom measuring 805 square feet is on the market for $409,000. The co-op’s kitchen was recently renovated and comes with stainless steel appliances. The bedroom can fit a king size bed, and the adjacent bathroom has a soaking tub. Aside from that, the apartment has high ceilings, and a good amount of closet space. [Floorplan]

↑ This large one-bedroom in Fort Greene is part of a new condop building and is on the market for exactly $450,000. The apartment comes with an in-unit washer & dryer, and a dishwasher. The apartment has bamboo cabinetry and floors, and the countertops are made with recycled glass and concrete. Residents in the building also have access to a community room, and a common terrace with barbecue facilities. [Floorplan]

↑Head to the Upper West Side where $439,000 can get you a sizable studio with a decorative fireplace, high ceilings, and large windows that fill the home with light. The listing description notes that there is an in-unit washing machine on hand and you get two closets for storage. Another plus is that Central Park is less than a block away, as is the B and C train’s 96th Street station. [Floorplan]

↑A one bedroom co-op on the top-floor of a prewar building in Jackson Heights is asking $449,000. The space possesses a bit of an old-school vibe, with its cute but slightly dated windowed kitchen, however, there is room for improvement and it wouldn’t be a huge undertaking. Its details include original wood floors, moldings, high ceilings, decent storage space, and lots of natural light. [Floorplan]

↑If space isn’t of the utmost importance for you, then consider this compact studio in Hell’s Kitchen for $395,000. There’s a living room with exposed brick, hardwood floors, a small windowed kitchen (that’s only partially revealed in the listing photos), and not much else. However, the location is about three blocks away from Columbus Circle, so that could be the upside.
