What/Where: co-op studio in the East Village

Square Footage: Around 300

Maintenance/Common Charges: $666.60

This is not a large studio; it’s about 300 square feet, including the bathroom. But the single room is laid out in such a way that it could conceivably fit a bed and a couch, and there are two large closets, which alleviates one of the biggest studio apartment problems—a lack of storage space.

The kitchen is designed to maximize space, with plenty of cabinets and overhead storage. The bathroom has a tub and a small vanity, as well as its own window.

Location-wise, the apartment is located in a building that’s smack in the middle of Alphabet City. Tompkins Square Park is at the end of the block, and while it’s a bit of a hike to the nearest subway—the L at First Avenue—there’s plenty of restaurants and nightlife nearby.

Knowing all that, how much do you think this studio is asking?
