East Village

A renovated one-bedroom condo in an East Village building (really, Alphabet City, considering it’s located between Avenues C and D) is going for $899,000. The apartment has big windows that let in plenty of light, and lots of modern amenities: marble counters, high-end appliances, a chic bathroom, and more. The monthlies come in at just over $1,100, and the building has laundry and a virtual doorman.

A spacious Bed-Stuy condo—it’s nearly 1,400 square feet, according to the listing—is asking $899,000. The apartment, which is located on the ground floor of a brownstone building, also comes with a more than 400-square-foot private terrace. The unit is a duplex, with the living room, kitchen, and bedroom on the upper level, and a rec room on the lower level.

Forest Hills

In Forest Hills, a large three-bedroom with a home office is going for $899,000. Two of the bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms, and the common areas are also quite spacious. It’s located in one of the nicest parts of the neighborhood: Forest Hills Gardens, the planned enclave that’s full of charming Tudor-style home.

In a new condo on the Gowanus-Park Slope border (it’s located on the corner of Fourth Avenue and 15th Street), a one-bedroom condo is asking $899,000. It’s in a new building and while the apartment is smaller than some here, it comes with a huge 700-square-foot terrace. There’s also one bathroom, high ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows, and a snazzy kitchen with a dishwasher.

And finally, here’s what close to $900,000 will get you in Midtown’s CitySpire building: a studio apartment—albeit one with a “sleeping area” and a ton of closet space—that’s asking precisely $895,000. Other features include a kitchen with new appliances, a slightly less new and swanky bathroom, and big windows.
