Beautiful Harlem 2BR in an HDFC Building

Location: 100 W. 141st St. #21, in Central Harlem

Saves: As of this writing, the most popular sale for January 19 has been saved by more than 270 users.

Price: $299,000. Assuming a 30-year mortgage and the minimum down payment of 20% ($59,800), StreetEasy estimates total monthly payments at $1,872. This includes the mortgage payment ($1,079), and maintenance fee ($793). This Harlem 2BR is an HDFC restricted-sale unit, so income restrictions apply.

Why it’s so popular: That price is not a misprint: $299,000! The median asking price for Central Harlem is an even $1M, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our most popular sale for January 19 at less than a third of the neighborhood average. (Of course, there is a catch: In an HDFC building like this one, buyers are held to strict income restrictions. For this Central Harlem 2BR, a single buyer cannot earn more than $95,220. See the listing for more HDFC details.) 

In addition to the unbeatable price, this is a spacious and well-outfitted home. The large subway-tiled kitchen opens to a dining nook at one end and the living room at the other. Sleek under-counter fridge and freezer units free up counter space. Original floors and arched doorways add character throughout. And in the primary bedroom, an exposed-brick decorative fireplace and welcoming window seat add even more. The prewar building boasts a grand lobby, a new elevator, and bike storage. Finally, it’s all just a few blocks from St. Nicholas Park and the City College campus.
