If you want to know why some people prefer prewars to shiny, new condos, look closely at this Windsor Terrace one-bedroom co-op. It has four closets (all with their original brass doorknobs), arched doorways, and a spacious entry foyer with built-in shelves—features you're probably not gong to get in a post-war or contemporary building.

The apartment is in an Art Deco-style building with a super (note: no doorman), a common laundry space, bike room, courtyard, and playroom. It's on the top floor of an elevator building, and with at least one window in every room (two in the living room and bedroom), there seems to be a decent amount of light coming in, too.

The kitchen is large by NYC standards, but the appliances and cabinets are white, so those who like the stainless, modern look might want an update. Plus there's plenty of room for a tiled backsplash should you feel up for it. 

On the other hand, the bathroom, which has a window in case you were wondering, looks like it's been recently re-tiled.

The asking price: $489,000 ( just slightly under the neighborhood median), with a monthly maintenance of $626.
