StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: These pads aren't far from the park

If you love nature and want to live within walking (or viewing) distance of a park in NYC, take notes on this roundup of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings saved more often than any others by StreetEasy browsers this week.

Stuyvesant Park is “right outside your door” in a $1.195m two-bedroom co-op on East 16th Street and Third Avenue in Gramercy Park. With southeastern exposures, you’ll also have park views from the master bedroom and living room. A windowed office alcove means you can work from home and enjoy the park on your lunch breaks. (The office can also serve as a second bedroom and is accessible through French doors.) The building has a new gym.

If you fancy living directly across from Prospect Park, consider a two-bedroom condo on Prospect Park Southwest -- between Windsor Place and 16th Street -- for $450k. The third floor duplex is located in a walk-up. Other downsides? The kitchen and two bathrooms need “superficial renovations,” and the central a/c system might also need to be updated.

You’ll find views of Central Park (and the southern city skyline) from the picture windows of a two-bedroom co-op on the corner of Central Park West and 83rd Street. The $1.5m prewar unit needs renovations.

In Greenwich Village, a top floor three-bedroom loft co-op on Laguardia Place and Bleecker Street, about two blocks from Washington Square Park, is on the market for $1.695m. Southern and eastern exposures offer views of downtown. The kitchen’s been renovated, and bathrooms were gut-renovated.
