Small Wonder

Snap up a window-filled studio with easy access to Lincoln Center and Columbus Circle

If you're the kind of New Yorker who would gladly sacrifice space for proximity to the citiy's main cultural hubs, you may want to consider this studio in Addison Hall, a 1920s co-op building on 57th Street between Ninth and Tenth avenues, just a short walk from Columbus Circle, Lincoln Center, and a bit further to the south, all of the biggest Broadway theaters.

The building is pet-friendly and has a 24-hour doorman, and unlike many co-op buildings, allows pied-a-terres, as well as sublets for two years out of five. As for the apartment itself, it's unusually light-filled for a Midtown studio, with windows on both sides of the main living area, as well as in the kitchen and bathroom:

The kitchen has stainless steel appliances and Caesarstone countertops, though you'll want to investigate in person to see whether or not there's room for a full-sized fridge. Similarly, the bathroom appears to be set up for a standing shower only, a potential dealbreaker for a buyer who likes a good soak.

At an asking price of $375,000, the apartment is more expensive than even other studios in the same building (this one on a lower floor is currently asking $349,000), but it would appear that you'll be paying extra for a corner location and all those windows. What do you think: worth it for an extra dose of vitamin D in your day-to-day?
