Five apartments, five NYC neighborhoods

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 $725,000.

West Village

In the West Village, a one-bedroom in an Art Deco co-op is asking $725,000. The unit itself is fairly basic: It has a nicely sized living room and bedroom, two closets, a long hallway, and a serviceable kitchen, but the location is excellent. It’s situated next to Abingdon Square Park, with plenty of transit options, shopping, and restaurants close by.

Midtown East

For $735,000, there’s a two-bedroom in the Beekman enclave of Midtown East. The apartment also has two and a half bathrooms, a ton of closet space (including a walk-in off the master bedroom), and a chic dining area. It’s located a few blocks from the East River waterfront in a co-op building.

Park Slope

A chic, renovated Park Slope co-op with one (small) bedroom is asking $735,000. On the plus side, the living room/kitchen area is lovely, with new appliances and cabinets, along with some exposed brick for character. There’s also a shared roof deck for residents of the building. On the downside, the bedroom is quite narrow.

Upper West Side

A two-bedroom co-op on the Upper West Side/Harlem border is going for $725,000. (The bedrooms are not exactly huge, but the space was once a one-bedroom, so could be transformed again.) There are some nice flourishes here, including built-in shelving in the living room and new kitchen appliances. It also has a good location, just one block from Riverside Park.

Jackson Heights

And finally, in Jackson Heights, a spacious two-bedroom, one-bathroom co-op is asking $735,000. The apartment’s common areas and bedrooms are separated by a foyer, and there’s plenty of closet space throughout. The bedrooms are also generously sized, and face the building’s shared garden.
