This three bedroom, one-and-a-half bath co-op in Morningside Heights is a block from Columbia University and across the street from Morningside Park. Listed for, for $1.495 million, 54 Morningside Dr. #54 is described as being 1,300 square feet, and has a large living room, a dining area, an open kitchen with a breakfast bar, and a Juliet balcony.

The kitchen is narrow, but seems to have a decent amount of storage, as well as a dishwasher and light from a large window.

The living and dining areas are spacious, with two exposures.

There are ceiling fans in most rooms, and the bedrooms are a nice size, with the master measuring 13 feet by 17 feet.

The corner bedroom is actually slightly bigger, but lacks the master's en-suite half bathroom.

The full bathroom that's pictured looks nicely updated.

The building is also a short distance from Barnard College, Union Theological Seminary, and The City College of New York.

The monthly maintenance fee is hefty at $2,243.

The building has a live-in super, a bike room, storage, and a laundry room. It's pet-friendly. 

For transportation, the 1 train is two long blocks away at 116th Street and Broadway, and the B and the C station at 116th is about the same distance in the other direction. Other nearby attractions include the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine and shopping options on Columbus and Amsterdam avenues.
