The apartment has a decent-sized living room and dining area.

Re-listed with the price cut to $389,000, 67-50 Thornton Place #5L in Forest Hills has a lot going for it. The two bedroom, one bath is a corner apartment on the fifth floor of a postwar co-op building. It has south-facing windows with treetop views, and wood floors in the common areas.

The tiled galley kitchen connects to a dining area.

A renovated bathroom includes a tub.

The master bedroom has southern and western exposures and can accommodate a king-size bed. Less appealing is the beige wall-to-wall carpeting, which has seen better days.

The second bedroom has the same carpeting.  

Heat, hot water and gas is included in the $946 monthly maintenance fee. The building also has a live-in super, indoor parking (there's a wait list), laundry, storage, bike rooms, and a private courtyard. The lobby and and entrance were recently renovated. Guarantors, co-purchasing, and pieds-a-terre are allowed, but pets are not.

For transportation, the E, M, and R trains are about a 12-minute walk away at 67th Avenue, and the bustling Austin Street strip, which has stores, restaurants, and bars, is about the same distance. The Forest Hills Long Island Rail Road station is a 15-minute walk.
