This airy pre-war one-bedroom plus dining room co-op at 166 East 92nd Street #5G (between Lexington and Third) has a flexible layout. The extra room (note that this is an honest to goodness room, not an alcove) can be used as a dining room, home office, or potentially a second bedroom. Although the latter choice would make things a bit cramped, the option makes the apartment attractive to those looking for a space to stash a child, either immediately or in the future. The apartment has pre-war details, high ceilings, original hardwood floors, a renovated kitchen and abundant light from mostly from southern and northern exposures. Although there is no doorman, there is a well-regarded live-in super, the building is pet friendly, and the maintenance is a reasonable $1,366.
First listed in June 2010 at $775,000, the apartment is now listed at $595,000 after two price reductions. That's almost 10% below the $665,000 the unit sold for in June 2005.
