Similar apartments in this area go for more than double the price. 


Yes, the maintenance is high on this two-bedroom, one-bath co-op in Greenwich Village, but it's still pretty rare to find a nice one of these under $1 million in this part of the city: The median asking price for similar-sized apartments in the neighborhood is $2,295,000, according to StreetEasy.

Located in a post-war building, 13 West 13th St., #6FS (clearly not a building for the superstitious) is listed for $985,000, with a maintenance fee of $2,315. It seems priced to move, asking only about $150,000 more than it sold for seven years ago.

The south-facing apartment has a sunny and large living and dining room area.

The open kitchen is renovated, and has a nice amount of cabinet and counter space. 

The master bedroom can fit a king-size bed. 

The second bedroom is also a nice size and well-lit. 

The bathroom has white subway tile with blue accent tiles. 

Amenities include a part-time doorman, a live-in super, bike storage, a parking garage (it's unclear of there is an available space),  and additional storage space for rent. 


The lobby of the co-op was recently renovated, and the building is pet-friendly. Pieds-à-terre are allowed, as is 75 percent financing. 

The location is hard to beat, with popular parks, retail big and small, numerous food shopping options, and spots to eat and drink close in all directions. The 4, 5, 6, N, Q, R, W, and L trains are two blocks away at Union Square, the A, C, and E trains are a short walk to the west, and the PATH is a few block south at Ninth Street.
