Welcome back to The Six-Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

This cute studio that has just hit the market on the Upper East Side’s Lenox Hill section has several things going for it: its location, a short walk to Central Park, its bookshelves, and its relatively low price tag of $430,000.

The 415-square-foot co-op has a renovated bathroom and kitchen, wood cabinetry, and floor-to-ceiling built-in bookshelves (a dream for book lovers). It also comes with three closets and a dishwasher. As far as the building goes, it’s pet friendly and has a common landscaped roof terrace, two elevators, and a common laundry room.

It’s located on 175 East 74th Street, between Third and Lexington avenues, a short walk to Central Park and near the 6 train at 77th Street. Maintenance charges are $939/month. Jackie Vincent of Corcoran has the listing.
