If you’re looking to buy an apartment in New York City right now, your must-haves are probably a bit different than before Covid-19. You’re likely looking for space, quiet, and privacy, especially if you’re going to be working or studying from home for the foreseeable future. One of the ways to get that wishlist is with a floor-through apartment.

These units occupy an entire floor and have perks that are important in the Covid era. You won’t share walls with noisy neighbors, will get good air circulation thanks to front and back windows and at higher price points, many have direct elevator access, so you don’t have to share a hall or stairs with your neighbors (and their germs). In walkup buildings, you’ll have the landing to yourself. And, these layouts usually give you a nice view in the front with the bedrooms in the back, where it’s quieter.

You'll find many floor-through apartments in townhouses or brownstones, but there are also many new developments with floor-through layouts too.

So, if buying a floor-through apartment sounds appealing to you, here are five on the market in Manhattan, including a Lower East Side condo and a Chelsea co-op.
