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

This $512,000 Brooklyn Heights studio's got some ingenious closets and storage systems that make the space feel neat and offer plenty of room to stash your things. They even help differentiate the "bedroom" from the rest of the apartment.

A built-in closet system on the left, built-in bookshelves on the right.

The only downside to this apartment is that it looks like you're sleeping with your head next to the kitchen.

There are even windows in the kitchen!

The  ingenious storage solutions continue in the kitchen, which has extra tall upper cabinets and a built-in bar cabinet with wine storage. There are also stainless steel appliances and a sleek glass backsplash.

The apartment also appears to have windows galore (thru-wall air conditioners also mean that none of the views get blocked). Also? The views happen to be of New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty, Ellis Island, the Verrazano Bridge and downtown Manhattan.

The Art Deco co-op building, located at 150 Joralemon Street, has basement storage, a live-in super and laundry facilities on every floor. It's also pet-friendly. Added bonus: It's near the 2,3,4,5 and R trains. We're sold.


How do I find a studio that doesn't feel like a jail cell?
