What $400K buys in NYC right now

New, 9 comments

From the Upper West Side to Prospect Heights, here’s what you can get for $400,000 or less

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.


↑A duplex studio on the Upper West Side is going for $399,000. The open-concept layout gives way to a small corner kitchen, a modest living room, and room for a dining area on the upper level while the lower floor accommodates space for a bed or home office and includes a walk-in closet. Monthly maintenance goes for $1,097. [Floorplan]

↑In Rego Park, a mere $388,000 can get you this 589-square-foot alcove studio. The layout is fairly simple with a decent-sized living room that receives lots of natural light, a modern kitchen, and a small nook just outside of the kitchen. The nearest subway station—the M and R train’s 67 Avenue station—is a bit of a trek (nearly a 10-minute walk away). [Floorplan]

↑This no-frills studio in the East Village resides on the second floor of a six-story co-op building and offers a modest kitchen (that could benefit from a revamp), a small living room with space to squeeze a bed in the corner, and a windowed bathroom. There are two closets for storage and monthly maintenance is just $357. Asking price is $385,000. [Floorplan]

↑A 1,200-square-foot co-op in Riverdale, offering two bedrooms and two bathrooms is asking $379,000. Among its flourishes are a windowed kitchen with a breakfast bar, original hardwood floors, an en-suite master bedroom with a walk-in closet, and a private terrace. There are at least four closets throughout and the ability to add a washer/dryer machine. [Floorplan]

↑ This Prospect Heights studio is part of a six-story co-op building, and it’s currently on the market for $399,000. The unit is considerably large for a studio and is located on the fourth floor of the building. The kitchen here recently underwent a renovation, and the dining area can seat up to six, according to the broker on the listing. Aside from that, the apartment has a dressing area next to the bathroom, and three closets. [Floorplan]
