By Lucy Cohen Blatter  | May 24, 2013 - 1:48PM

This alcove studio is located in the elegant, full-service Brompton condo building at 205 East 85th Street, between Second and Third avenues. The apartment is available on July 1.

Pros: The unit is large enough to be converted to a one-bedroom.  TV, linens, a bed, sofa-bed, washer-dryer and electric are all included in the price. 

Cons: Board approval is required. For some, the fact that it comes furnished could be a problem.
