To the left is the sleeping alcove—which is separated from the main living area by a billowy curtain. It’s effective, but if drapery isn’t your style, you could always swap it out for a bookcase wall or a screen. The alcove has enough room for a queen-sized bed and a side table—but with one dimension smaller than eight feet, it's too small to be considered a legal bedroom, if you're looking for an alcove studio to convert to a one bedroom. The alcove does a window, so you won’t feel like you’re sleeping in a box.
The kitchen isn’t huge, but it has new, full-sized, stainless steel appliances (including a dishwasher), a breakfast bar, and dark-wood cabinets that stand out against the light-wood flooring.
The bathroom was also recently renovated, and has a wood vanity.
The studio is located in Tracy Towers, a 16-story co-op building with a full-time doorman, a live-in super, a central laundry room, a bike room, storage, and a roof deck with 360-degree views of Manhattan. Pieds-à-terre, co-purchasing, and pets are all allowed. Maintenance is $924 a month.
