UPPER EAST SIDE: A one-bedroom, one-and-a-half-bath condo in a condo building with a doorman. The price was recently cut by $145,000 to $1,750,000.

A drastic price reduction on an apartment can mean a lot of things: Maybe the unit was mistakenly priced too high at the outset. Maybe it suddenly developed a big issue—a leak upstairs damaged the ceiling, a flood destroyed the floors—that’ll need to be repaired. Or maybe the owner simply is motivated to sell quickly. Whatever it is, a price cut can be good news for the buyer.

Here are 10 listings in Manhattan and Brooklyn that have recently had a $100,000 or more reduction in price, including a two-bedroom duplex in Williamsburg, a Brooklyn Heights three-bedroom in a converted warehouse, and an 1,800-square-foot four-bedroom in Murray Hill.
