Condo pick of the week

The apartment comes with an eat-in kitchen and a recently renovated bathroom.


Apartment-wise, Jackson Heights, Queens is best known for its prewar co-ops, many of which share manicured courtyards. Condos are a bit tougher to find in the neighborhood. This two bedroom, one bath, listed by CORE for $780,000, is one of two condos currently on the market in the neighborhood. This one has a relatively low monthly common charge of $431 a month.

Located in a 1939 building, the apartment has a more classic feel than what you're likely to find in newer condos. The layout is roomy, starting with an entry foyer.

The living space looks sunny, and is spacious enough to create a separate dining area. French doors open onto the recently updated galley kitchen, which has granite countertops and plentiful storage. Past the entry foyer is a hall space that doubles as an office nook as the apartment is currently set up.

The north-facing bedrooms both have two closets each. The master bedroom overlooks the garden. The windowed bath has been updated with new subway tiles.

The building is pet-friendly with a live-in super, laundry, and storage space available. There's communal access to the garden, and a farmers market is close by. The transit hub at 74th Street, served by the E, F, M, R and 7 trains, is seven blocks away.
