This Hamilton Heights apartment costs well below the borough median, but it comes with income restrictions for buyers. Corcoran

One of the latest market reports from Douglas Elliman reveals that the median Manhattan co-op price has shot up to a record-breaking $850,000. It's not the most encouraging news for buyers, but as it turns out, there are still options out there for those seeking a decent set of digs for under $1 million.

The following two-bedroom Manhattan co-ops are all hosting open houses this weekend, with asking prices starting at $595,000. 


302 Convent St., Harlem: This two bedroom, one bath is an HDFC co-op, which means it's income-restricted. In this case, buyers must earn no more than 165 percent of the area median income, or $157,410 for a family of four. The apartment is in a prewar building, and was renovated six years ago. It features a large galley kitchen with plenty of storage, high ceilings, and multiple exposures. The building has a live-in super and is pet-friendly.

Asking price: $595,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 12-1:30 p.m.


131 East 93rd St., Upper East Side: This corner two-bedroom, one-bath apartment has prewar features such as high ceilings and a long entry foyer, and the master bedroom's en-suite bath was recently renovated. The second bedroom looks like it may have originally been part of the living room and does not have its own bath, though it does include built-in bookshelves. The building has a live-in super, a roof deck, laundry, and a bike room, and is pet-friendly.

Asking price: $795,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 1-2 p.m.

120 Bennett Ave., Washington Heights: This recently renovated prewar two bedroom, one bath has a sunken living room, curved doorways, and built-in bookshelves, as well as an updated kitchen with high-end appliances, plentiful cabinetry, and a breakfast nook. The building has a live-in super, laundry, cold storage, and a garden. Cats are permitted.

Asking price: $759,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 2:30-3:30 p.m. 


50 East 8th St., Greenwich Village: Located near Washington Square Park, this two-bedroom, one-bath co-op has a living room that's on the small side, but arguably makes up for it with a large open kitchen outfitted with plentiful storage and new stainless steel appliances. The bathroom has also been renovated and the bedrooms have ample closet space. 

Asking price: $929,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m. 

25 Tudor City Pl., Murray Hill: Located in the massive Tudor City complex, this co-op has two bedrooms almost equal in size, each with its own full bath and large closet. The unit has been recently renovated, and the kitchen has new counters and appliances. The master bath looks especially spa-like, with dark cabinetry and a sleek walk-in shower.

Asking price: $975,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 12-2 p.m.

215 West 92nd St., Upper West Side: Both bedrooms are sizable in this prewar co-op, and separate living and dining areas add to the sense of spaciousness. The galley kitchen has been recently updated with new cabinets and stainless steel appliances, and the windowed bathroom has been renovated as well. The building offers full-time doorman service, a live-in super, a laundry room, and bike storage. Pets are allowed.

Asking price: $995,000

Open house: Sunday, October 15th, 2:30-3:30 p.m.
