Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a weekly column that explores what one can buy for a set dollar amount in various NYC neighborhoods. Is one man’s studio another man’s townhouse? Let’s find out! Today, we’re looking at apartments for sale for around $950,000.

Compass
Downtown Brooklyn

In Downtown Brooklyn’s Beltell Lofts building, a 1,000-square-foot condo is going for an even $950,000. Though it’s only a one-bedroom, the apartment has a ton of room—a long entry hallway (with two closets) leads to the spacious living room, with enough space for a dining area and plenty of storage. Taxes and common charges come to just over $700/month.

Nest Seekers
West Village

A one-bedroom co-op in the West Village is going for $950,000. The apartment has a spacious living room and bedroom, which are separated by a hallway that has a walk-in closet. The apartment is located in a co-op building on West 11th Street between Bleecker and West 4th streets—so prime West Village—and has a monthly maintenance fee of $1,287.

Compass
Chelsea

In Chelsea, a one-bedroom duplex with a terrace is asking $950,000. The home is divided between the common spaces on the lower level, and a bedroom/study on the upper one. The living room leads out to a small terrace, and in terms of storage, closets abound. (Another plus: there’s a powder room on the lower level.) It’s located on West 29th Street close to Ninth Avenue.

Traci Kuther
Upper West Side

A renovated one-bedroom on the Upper West Side is listed for $945,000. The living room is quite spacious and comes with built-in bookshelves, and there’s a small dining area separate from that space. A small hallway leads to the bedroom, which has two closets. And the location—on West 86th Street a block from Central Park—can’t be beat.

Nest Seekers
Lower East Side

And finally, on the Lower East Side, a one-bedroom that has a “flexible floor plan”—there’s a small dining alcove that could become a small second bedroom, per the brokerbabble—is going for $949,000. There is plenty of space to work with, and the apartment comes with a washer/dryer and a dishwasher. It’s located on Ludlow Street between Rivington and Stanton streets.
