The Open House Scorecard: Windows to the world (or NYC)

If you’re craving natural light (and who isn’t?), you’re probably scouring the city for an apartment with lots of windows.

But you're going to have some competition, because apparently so is everyone else. This week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open-houses people searching StreetEasy.comthis past weekend saved to their calendars more often than any others -- shines a light on apartments with lots of windows (and light). 

You can peer out of 11 windows in this $875k three-bedroom condo on Sterling Place between Flatbush and Seventh Avenues in Park Slope. The unit comes with roof rights, where you can construct a deck. The building is close to Prospect Park and three stops to Manhattan from the nearby 2, 3, B and Q trains. A tax abatement is in place, making for low carrying charges (common charges $310, taxes $34).

Light isn’t scarce in a $629k one-bedroom condo on Central Park West and 100th Street, which has a 20’ wall of double insulated windows. The triple mint condition unit features a renovated bath and 10’ of retractable French doors. The building has a state-of-the-art gym and high-speed Internet service.

On Riverside Drive in Morningside Heights, a one-bedroom co-op on the market for $525k features a window topped with stained glass. There’s also a windowed, renovated kitchen with a dishwasher. The apartment -- located between West 11th and Cathedral Parkway -- is directly across from Riverside Park. A monthly assessment of $58.35 is in place through December 2013.
