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 $450,000.
A bright co-op studio in Midtown East is up for grabs for $450,000. It has large windows, new hardwood floors, and a renovated kitchen and bathroom. A major plus is its location: It sits on East 57th Street, between Second and Third Avenues, a 13-minute walk to Central Park. A downside? Its monthlies are high, at $1,244/month.
In Jackson Heights, a charming one-bedroom co-op is selling for $430,000. The apartment has plenty of nice prewar touches like arched entryways and crown moldings. It comes with a relatively spacious living room, seven closets, an eat-in kitchen, and a spacious foyer. The building comes with a common laundry room and accepts pets.
Another spacious one-bedroom co-op is up for grabs in Kensington for $425,000. It has a large living area, a walk-in closet, and hardwood floors. It’s near the Q train at Cortelyou Road, and, perhaps most notably, it’s located at a walkable distance to Prospect Park.
This studio apartment inside a historic Park Slope townhouse is on the market for $429,000. It has all the posh details expected of brownstones in the area: a decorative fireplace, built-in bookshelves, large windows, and high ceilings. Per the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s designation report, the home was built by “prolific neighborhood builder” William Gubbins between 1892 and 1893, as part of a row of three houses on Montgomery Place.
Finally, this cute Harlem one-bedroom condo is selling for $475,000. The 500-square-foot unit comes with a spacious living room, two closets, and its own private balcony. Some nice details include its mahogany-stained oak floors, and crown moldings on its walls. Monthlies for the building, which sits on Lenox Avenue, come in at $747/month.
