Midtown is a hub of a lot of things, including, as we discussed in a piece earlier this week, pieds-a-terre. The pace of apartment sales is typically brisk in the area, and buyers from outside New York looking for an investment pad to perhaps visit once or twice a year are only increasing the competition. Still, there's a fair amount of inventory out there, especially if you consider the many sub-neighborhoods that make up Midtown as one.

Here are five apartments for sale in the neighborhood, broadly defined, all having open houses this weekend.

The apartment is listed for $1.049 million. Common charges are $622 a month.

A one bedroom co-op in Kips Bay, listed for $849,000. It's a narrow split-level apartment with carpet and exposed brick upstairs, and wood floors on the ground level.
