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 $20,000 of today’s price: $300,000.
A 300-square-foot studio in Williamsburg with a cute kitchen is asking $299,000. It’s not a huge space, but there’s space for a bed, living room area, and even a small kitchen table. The apartment is located on South 3rd Street near Bedford Avenue, and it’s in an HDFC co-op building, meaning there are income restrictions on who can buy.
In the Bronx, a one-bedroom in Kingsbridge is going for $290,000. The apartment and bright and spacious, and thanks to a recent renovation, there are new appliances and fixtures throughout. There’s also a rather sizable master closet with tons of storage space. It’s on East 238th Street, about a 10-minute walk from the second to last stop on the 1 line.
Upper East Side
On the Upper East Side, a compact, ground-floor studio is going for $319,000. It’s a simple space: Just one common space of around 200 square feet, along with a kitchen that’s separate from the living room, and what appears to be a spacious bathroom. Its location is prime UES—84th Street between Second and Third avenues—and maintenance is only $450/month.
In a co-op building on Eastern Parkway, a studio apartment with a small, separate kitchen is going for just under $300,000. The space isn’t huge, but given the layout—it’s basically a square—it’s definitely workable. And the location—across from the Brooklyn Museum, Prospect Park, and the 2 and 3 trains—can’t be beat.
And finally, in Hamilton Heights, a one-bedroom apartment is going for $299,000. There isn’t much closet space, and the kitchen is tiny but tidy. But on the plus side, it has big windows, a nice sized bedroom, and it’s close to Convent Avenue, one of the prettiest blocks in New York. Maintenance is $586/month.
