Drumroll, please: The most popular Manhattan apartment in 2019 was this two-level co-op in the West Village listed for $600,000. It offers a discount of $400K compared to the median price for a 1-bedroom in the West Village and comes with a fireplace and private garden. Note: The bedroom is on the lower level, with a skylight as its only source of light. But wow, that fireplace! Josh Rubin of Douglas Elliman represents the listing.
The only thing more impressive than this co-op’s $169,000 listing price is the amount of storage space it offers. Count ’em: five closets, plus a walk-in pantry and a broom closet in the kitchen. (A broom closet!) In a curious twist, this unusually affordable home is located in a land-lease building on Billionaire’s Row. Land-lease units can be tricky to sell, but this one racked up more than 1,400 saves and, as of November 8, is in contract. Joelle Pergolotti represents the listing.

The appeal of closet space is real: This 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom co-op has racked up more than 1,000 saves and offers no less than seven closets, one of which is a walk-in. Originally listed for $1,095,000, the property has had several price reductions and is now listed for over $1 million less than the median asking price for a 2-bedroom in Manhattan. Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon of Douglas Elliman represent the listing.
At $1,295,000, this massive East Village condo was listed for over $2 million less than the neighborhood median price for a 3-bedroom and came with soaring ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and in-unit laundry. It also came with a long-term tenant. But tenant or not, buyers were still clearly interested: It pulled in nearly 1,000 saves before being removed from the market. Elie Pariente of Synergy NYC represented the listing.
