Co-op pick of the week

Is this Upper East Side co-op the perfect pied-a-terre?

Pied-a-terre buyers often look for apartments near cultural institutions, restaurants, and easy access to transportation and this studio apartment on 73rd Street between Second and Third Avenue checks off all those boxes.

It's walking distance from Fifth Avenue's Museum Mile and Central Park and, thanks to the new Q train (which has an entrance on 72nd and Second Avenue), there's easy access to downtown hotspots, too.

The second-floor apartment is in a prewar building on a quiet block that also happens to house Eastgate homes, designed by esteemed prewar architect Emery Roth (known for the Eldorado and Beresford buildings on Central Park West).


The studio has lovely prewar details, like beamed ceilings and hardwood floors. The kitchen has a window, custom cabinetry, granite countertops and a dishwasher. Classic subway tiles lines the bathroom walls.

While small, the apartment has an entry foyer and three closets. And the building has a 24-hour doorman, concierge, landscaped courtyard, bike storage, a renovated gym, and a laundry room.

The apartment is asking $499,000, with a $985/month maintenance. In addition to pied-a-terres, co-purchasing is allowed, so this could also be a good option for a young person whose parents want to help buy their first NYC apartment.
