If you have your heart set on living in the East Village, sadly, it's getting harder and harder to find a place under $1 million. Which is why this well-priced two bedroom, one bath, 125 East Fourth St., #14, caught our eye. Yes, it's a fourth-floor walk-up, but it's $575,000 with $929 maintenance, and has some nice features, too. (Note: it's a condop. Read more about those here.) Bear in mind that the median asking price for a two bedroom in the East Village is now a whopping $1,495,000.

The 600-square-foot prewar apartment has high, original tin ceilings, hardwood floors, French doors, and southern and eastern exposures. 

The kitchen has a window, as well as a fair amount of counter space and cabinets, and a dishwasher. 

The master bedroom can accommodate a king-size bed, and the large storage wall unit transfers with the sale. 

The building has a live-in porter, laundry room, storage facility and bike space. Dogs are also allowed. 

Parental assistance with buying is permitted, and there is limited subleasing after two years with board approval.


The F train at Second Avenue is four blocks away, and there are lots of dining, shopping, and nightlife opportunities in the neighborhood. Plus Tomkins Square Park is close by, too.
