If you're a ballet/opera aficionado (or maybe a singer or dancer), this $535,000 co-op steps from Lincoln Center could be ideal. It's one of those be-a-tourist-in-your-own-city type of apartments, that also happens to be right near the subway, should you choose to take in culture outside the neighborhood.
The kitchen is a pass-through—meaning there are two entrances/exits—and it comes with a pretty tile backsplash, under-cabinet lighting, custom wood cabinets, and a small wine fridge squeezed in there (sometimes it's the little things that count).
The postwar co-op allows for 75 percent financing, and pied-a-terres are okay. Plus, the price is on par with the neighborhood median of $525,000. There's also a doorman, gym, playroom, bike room, and a garage in the building.
