How much total do you plan to tip the building staff this year?

Brooklyn and Queens may be getting all the love from starter-apartment buyers on a budget, but for avowed Manhattanites, the northernmost portion of the borough still offers apartments at reachable prices. Plus, it’s got plenty of restaurants, green space (hello, Fort Tryon Park, Isham Park and Inwood Hill Park!) and access to two train lines.

90 Park Terrace East, #3B. This spacious, 425-square-foot studio doesn’t feel like a studio, thanks to its layout. The kitchen’s been renovated and outfitted with top-shelf appliances (Fisher & Paykel), too. (Note: an accepted offer is in place as of this writing, but it’s still listed as hosting an open house.) Asking price: $225,000. Open house: Sunday, April 19, 1:30 pm to 3 pm.

57 Park Terrace West, #2G. A 795-square-foot one-bedroom with a dedicated dining room and a generously sized foyer in an Art Deco building. Asking price: $300,000. Open house: Sunday, April 19, 12 noon to 1:30 pm.

57 Park Terrace East, #B67. Another option in the same complex: This two-bedroom, one-bath with a renovated kitchen in a pet-friendly elevator co-op. Asking price: $529,000. Open house: Sunday, April 19, 11:30 am to 1 pm.
