StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Let there be light — for under a million bucks
By Sara Alessi |March 23, 2012 - 11:36AM
Looking for a sunny space in Manhattan for under $1 million?
New Yorkers are hungry for sunshine to break through the
skyscrapers, and when it graces the walls of their homes, it’s even better. Fortunately, this week’s Most Wanted round-up — the 10 abodes StreetEasy users saved more frequently than any others —
features apartments with tons of windows and six-digit price tags.
On the Upper West Side, a two-bedroom co-opon West 74th Street between Columbus and Amsterdam Avenues rings in at
$875,000. The space has an oversized kitchen window that faces east, flooding
the apartment with natural light. The
living/dining room has north facing windows, and the master bedroom is a corner
room with double exposures. The unit has been renovated and is move-in ready,
so as the listing says, you can grab your “toothbrush and move right in.” Plus,
it’s close to an express subway and only a couple blocks from Central Park.
At around half the monthly maintenance cost ($878/month) in Brooklyn, a two-bedroom co-op on 7th Avenuebetween St. John’s Place and Lincoln Place being
offered for $599,000 (pictured at left) is also move-in ready. The
sunny unit’s bedrooms overlook the gardens of St. John’s Place, and there’s a
washer/dryer in the apartment. The renovated kitchen, updated bathroom
and wood-burning fireplace also add to the four-room apartment’s appeal. The
catch? It's a third floor walk-up.
Just making the below-$1m cut, up on 67th Street between Lexington and Third Avenues, $999,000 will get you a postwar16th floor two-bedroom co-op with open south and east exposures and windows in
every room. There's even more light on the south-facing terrace. Added bonus: A 'discounted' garage is said to be just across the street.
