A one-bedroom apartment in a Chelsea co-op building is going for an even $750,000. Both the living room (which comes with a wood-burning fireplace) and the bedroom are nicely sized, and there’s plenty of closet space; the kitchen, however, is on the smaller side. The apartment is located on West 15th Street, just steps from the Eighth Avenue subway stop.

Bay Ridge

Down in Bay Ridge, a renovated two-bedroom apartment in a recently converted condo building is asking $749,000. (The floorplan shows a third bedroom, but since its only window is out onto the apartment’s terrace, it would likely work better as an office or other space.) There are two bathrooms, an open kitchen with new appliances, and tons of space. It’s a short walk from there to the Bay Ridge-95th Street subway stop.

This Soho apartment is billed as a junior one-bedroom, and indeed, there’s a small sleeping area that’s separated from the rest of the apartment by a pair of curtains. It’s a nice space, albeit cozy; the living room and “bedroom” both have large windows, and the kitchen comes with a dishwasher. It’s located on a co-op building on the corner of Charlton Street and Sixth Avenue.

For an even $750,000, there’s a one-bedroom in Astoria that comes with a balcony. The view is the best part of this place: It faces Manhattan, so there are spectacular skyline vistas through its huge windows. Other perks include a new kitchen with a dishwasher, and a washer/dryer in unit. On the downside, it’s a bit of a hike to the nearest subway stop.

Upper East Side

And finally, on the Upper East Side, a big one-bedroom is asking $750,000. There’s an abundance of closet space here, with one huge walk-in off the bedroom, and a smaller—but still big—one near the entryway. The kitchen is new and bright, and there are lots of built-ins throughout the apartment. It’s located on East 69th Street between First and Second avenues.
