To the naked eye, this $1.695 million two-bedroom, two-bathroom at 107th Street and Central Park West seems like a classic prewar co-op, but it's actually a condo. What that means for you: You can put down just 10 percent (instead of the usual co-op requisite of 20 percent) and don't have to go through a board interview. Win!
The apartment's has a dining alcove, a kitchen with a window big enough for a small breakfast bar, and two well-sized bedrooms. Plus, it's got unobstructed views of Central Park, which should be particularly beautiful when the trees are covered in snow. (You know it's coming soon.)
The mid-rise 1920s building at 467 Central Park West has a doorman, live-in super, bike room, and storage.
