The Price: $525,000

The median asking price for a home on the Upper West Side was $1.7 million in November 2023, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That means our Deal of the Week is priced at under a third of the median asking price for the greater neighborhood!

Buyers who put down the minimum 30% ($157,500) can expect to see monthly payments of $3,737. This includes a mortgage payment of $2,393 and a maintenance fee of $1,344. Monthly payments are also far below the median asking rent for the Upper West Side, which was $4,350 in November.

Why You’ll Love It…

This studio is well designed to make the most of its space and layout. A sliding screen runs parallel to the wall of expansive windows, providing the ability to open and close off the bedroom/sleeping area as you please. An additional alcove creates the ideal work-from-home station or dining nook.

Upon entering the unit, you’ll find the galley-style kitchen on your left, perfectly separated from the sleeping and living areas. The updated kitchen includes granite countertops, ample cabinetry, and stainless steel appliances, including a full-size refrigerator and a dishwasher!

Across from the kitchen is a large closet, but it’s not the only one you’ll find in the unit. There’s also a dressing area with another closet, separating the main living area from the bathroom. Like the kitchen, the bathroom has been updated and features white subway tile, a shower/tub combo, and a spacious vanity and medicine cabinet.

When you live in Manhattan, what’s outside the unit is just as important as what’s inside. Luckily, this apartment has all the fixings: it’s located in a full-service, luxury building with a full-time doorman, elevator, pet-friendly policy, bike room, gym, laundry room, parking, and more. The building is situated close to Riverside Park South, Central Park, the Lincoln Center Theater, and the Beacon Theatre, as well as the 1, 2, 3, B, and C trains. In addition to the parks and theaters, you’ll never be short of eateries to explore, with Cafe Luxembourg, Sushi Yasaka, and Levain Bakery all located within a few blocks.

…And Why You Might Not

The unit has tile flooring instead of hardwood, which won’t be everyone’s preference. The kitchen and bathroom don’t have windows, but for the amount of light you get in the living area, it might be a worthy tradeoff.
