The co-op at 8701 Shore Rd., #434, in Fort Hamilton, is listed as a "junior four," but for New York City, 1,000 square feet isn't that junior. And this two-bedroom, one-bath apartment has other attractive features: It is in a prewar building and has high ceilings, large windows, and hardwood floors. Listed for $479,000, it's competitively priced for the neighborhood. 

The apartment's entryway has three closets, and a large foyer that can be used as a dining room or home office. 

The apartment has an eat-in kitchen as well. 

A separate room once used as a bedroom has harbor views. 

The bathroom has been recently updated, and has a separate tub and shower. 

The bedroom can accommodate a king-size bed.

The building has a bike room and laundry, and allows pets under 40 pounds; maintenance is $826. 

An express bus gets you to Midtown in about an hour. Shopping and dining options are a few blocks away at 86th Street and Third Avenue.
