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?
