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 $1 million.

Stephano Okmar
Prospect Heights

A two-bedroom in one of the prettiest buildings in Prospect Heights is asking $998,000. The duplex co-op is located in the former P.S.9 School Annex building, a landmarked Romanesque Revival building close to Vanderbilt Avenue. In addition to the two bedrooms, it has high ceilings, one and a half bathrooms, a large living room, and a washer/dryer.

Upper East Side

On the Upper East Side, a two-bedroom co-op in a doorman building is going for $989,000. The apartment has plenty of storage space—lots of kitchen cabinets, built-ins in the living room, and more—and spacious bedrooms, and the kitchen itself is separated from the rest of the apartment. It’s located on East 82nd Street between Second and Third avenues.

An entire townhouse in Ridgewood is asking $975,000. It’s not a huge house—around 1,275 square feet, according to the listing—and it’s in need of some updates, but it has good bones. There are two bedrooms, a den, one bathroom, an eat-in kitchen, a back patio, and a garage. It’s located on Willoughby Avenue close to the Jefferson Street stop on the L train.

Julia Gillard
Greenwich Village

This Greenwich Village apartment, asking $975,000, bills itself as an alcove studio—there’s a small space carved out of the living area where a bed can go, which extends into the living room/dining room area. While it may not be as spacious as some of the other apartments on this list, it has the benefit of a stellar location: it’s two blocks north of Washington Square Park in a lovely Fifth Avenue co-op building.

Sutton Place

And finally, a two-bedroom co-op in Manhattan’s Sutton Place enclave is asking an even $1 million. The apartment has three bathrooms, two Murphy beds (really!), three bathrooms, and its own private garden—you just have to be okay with a ground-floor unit. It’s located on 58th Street close to the East River.
