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 $15,000 of today’s price: $1 million.
A cute two-bedroom in the East Village, located on Third Street between First and Second avenues, is going for $995,000. There are plenty of vintage details—a claw-foot tub, exposed brick—along with newer, modern amenities like a washer/dryer and a revamped kitchen. The maintenance comes in at $1,222/month, and the building comes with private storage and a roof deck.
Upper East Side
This Upper East Side one-bedroom may be a little dated (the kitchen, in particular, could use a refresh), but it is a good canvas to work with. The living room/dining room area is large, there are two bathrooms, and there’s a huge walk-in closet. It’s also in a prime UES area, on 70th Street between Lexington and Third avenues. It’s asking an even $1 million.
This two-bedroom co-op in Park Slope has a lot going for it: The kitchen was recently upgraded with new appliances (including a dishwasher); there’s some lovely vintage character (tin ceilings, oak moldings); and it’s less than a block away from Prospect Park. The list price is $995,000.
New Brighton, Staten Island
For $1 million, you could buy an entire house on Staten Island, close to the Snug Harbor Cultural Center. This six-bedroom, Colonial-style house has lovely period details—a large center staircase, original hardwood floors, and the like—and a ton of space, clocking in at nearly 4,000 square feet. (But some rooms, like the kitchen, could use some updates.) It’s asking $995,000.
And finally, for $999,000, there’s a two-bedroom condo in Williamsburg, on the southern side of the neighborhood. It comes with an open kitchen with new appliances, one bathroom, a washer/dryer, and a terrace. The buyer will also benefit from the building’s 421-a tax abatement, which doesn’t expire until 2030.
