Midtown East

A spacious one-bedroom co-op close to Beekman Place is asking $599,000. The 800-square-foot apartment has two big rooms, a smallish kitchen, and what the listing says is “extensive closet space” (seemingly all in the hall, according to the floorplan). It’s located on East 51st Street close to the East River.

Sunset Park

In contrast, this Sunset Park two-bedroom, also asking $599,000, is overflowing with storage space, but the built-ins in the living and dining rooms are what caught our eye. Also spanning 800 square feet, this apartment has two smaller bedrooms, an eat-in kitchen, and one bathroom. It’s situated on the top floor of its building, which is located on 40th Street just around the corner from the neighborhood’s namesake park.

Upper West Side

On the Upper West Side, a studio apartment with a large private terrace is going for $599,000. The listing claims it can be converted into a one-bedroom, but even in its studio form, there’s plenty to like. The kitchen appliances are new, it’s bright, and there are charming elements like a decorative fireplace and exposed brick. It’s also less than a block from Central Park.

Jackson Heights

For more space, head to Jackson Heights, where a 1,000-square-foot two-bedroom is asking $580,000. The apartment has a living room and separate dining area, a galley kitchen, and plenty of closet space. It’s part of the Linden Court complex, and the unit comes with access to the shared courtyard.

Prospect Heights

And finally, in Prospect Heights, a simple one-bedroom close to Prospect Park is asking $599,000. The 600-square-foot apartment has a separate kitchen, living room, and bedroom, with new appliances and a good amount of closet space throughout. The location can’t be beat: It’s around the corner from subways, the park, and one of the city’s best restaurants.
