Not all New Yorkers need or want a 24/7 doorman. This week's Open House Scorecard--the 10 apartments StreetEasy users saved to their open-house calendars most
often this past weekend--features a few places that may appeal to the DIY crowd.
On West 90th Street, half a block from Central Park, a $695k
one-bedroom condo (pictured) is in a prewar elevator building with a video security system rather than a doorman. There's a renovated, windowed kitchen and a master bedroom with southern views over
townhouse gardens. Low monthly charges ($669) include a $126 monthly assessment until
December for common area renovations.
If you really want to forget the whole doorman thing, you might consider a $1.5 million four-bedroom townhouse in Park Slope on 6th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, which "needs updating." The brick home can be used as a one- or two-family space, and whoever buys it can build up to 1,500 additional square feet.
