The Market

StreetEasy’s Most Wanted: Back-to-school edition

If an apartment with room to stash a kid on the East Side of Manhattan (upper or lower) tickles your fancy, take notes on this edition of StreetEasy’s Most Wanted -- the 10 sales listings StreetEasy users saved more often than any others this week.

On the Lower East Side, on Bowery between Rivington and Delancey Streets, is a corner unit $950k two-bedroom condo with oversized windows. It’s located in Nolita Place, a full service building with a live-in super, 24-hour doorman, fitness center and shared landscaped roof deck.

Up on East 80th, you’ll find a two-bedroom co-op on the market for almost the same amount -- $949k. Located in the Kenilworth, between Lexington and Third Avenues, this new-to-market apartment features a balcony with open views and renovated bathrooms and kitchen. There’s also a common planted roof deck. Another perk if you have kids (or plan to): The pad is in the very highly regarded P.S. 6 school district. As there were no interior photos up when we last checked, it's possible that this well-priced apartment needs some serious elbow grease.

Also on the UES is a $1.05m two-bedroom co-op on East 74th and Third Avenue. The 30’ living room can also serve as a home office or study, and there’s a windowed kitchen with a separate dining alcove. You'll need board approval for an in-unit W/Ds, and your dog better be the independent type, as just one small dog is allowed per apartment. The unit is in its “original condition"--with no interior photos posted--so it almost definitely needs some work. A monthly assessment of $139 is in place.
