The Open House Scorecard: Park, city and river views oh my

By Sara Alessi  | February 25, 2013 - 1:14PM

Maybe it was all that talk about air rights in the NY Times this weekend, but snagging an apartment with a nice view was apparentlyh on open-house-visitors’ minds this weekend. This week’s Open House Scorecard -- the 10 open houses StreetEasy users saved to their open-house planners more often than an others this weekend -- because it features a set of apartments with versatile views. 

The Hudson River and Riverside Park are visible from a $1.395m two-bedroom, two-bathroom in a doorman co-op on West End Avenue and 72nd Street. The pre-war corner unit offers these views from the living and dining rooms, kitchen and north and west exposures of the master bedroom. The apartment also features two walk-in closets (in addition to standard closets). There’s no flip-tax on this for-sale-by-owner unit, but a capital improvement assessment of $252.84 is in effect through December 2014, and bathrooms, which are in their original condition, may need updating.

Over in Park Slope, Brooklyn, a $585k one-bedroom, one-bathroom condo (convertible to a junior two-bedroom) on Fourth Avenue offers views of Washington Park. Other perks include an in-unit W/D and a private balcony that overlooks the park. The building has a residents lounge with free WiFi, a playroom, a fitness center and a 24-hour concierge service. Plus, it’s close to the R, F and G trains. Monthly charges are $510/month for common charges and 25-year-tax abatement that's keeping property taxes at $44/month for now. 

Also in Park Slope, you can see Manhattan from a two-bedroom, two-bath condo on the market for $999k. Located on First Street between Fourth and Fifth Avenues, the top-floor duplex has two terraces and a kitchen with name-brand appliances (a Viking stovetop, Bosch wall oven, Jenn-Air French door fridge, and a Whirlpool W/D). Balconies off the master and second bedrooms and dual zone central air and heat round out the apartment.
