This Tudor City studio offers prewar charm and classic NYC living with incredible East River views. Assuming a 20 percent down payment, a reasonable maintenance fee of $668 brings the monthly payment here to about $2,125, including mortgage. And pied-à-terre use is allowed. Listing by Bevan Verseld of DJK Residential.
Yes, it’s a studio, but look at the two wonderful outdoor spaces it has access to. One is a shared roof deck with potted plants and wide open views, and the other is a ground-level patio with a lovely waterfall and koi pond. This co-op allows pied-à-terres, pets and subletting. Listing by Mary Cooney of Akam Sales.
Forest Hills calls with this spacious, 750-square-foot 1-bedroom, priced at about what you’d pay for a studio in Manhattan. This Queens neighborhood has everything to make you feel at home, and provides good subway access to Manhattan via the E and F lines, which are less than a quarter-mile away. Listing by Devin Kogel and Christopher Daish of Corcoran.
Here’s a popular listing: An efficient co-op studio in Sutton Place, one of the more exclusive East Side sections of Manhattan.

There’s lots to love with this studio apartment in the Woodstock Tower, part of the Tudor City complex in Midtown East. It was recently renovated, though it’s retained its classic prewar details. AC, heat and hot water are included in the $745 maintenance fee. Listing by Donna Conti of Douglas Elliman.
This place is tiny (290 square feet), and it just dropped in price by $50K last week, which means it’s now probably closer to the right price. But otherwise the place packs a lot of charm, and lands you in Hell’s Kitchen between Ninth and Tenth avenues. Listing by Cheryl Greenberg and Annamaria Fattori of City Connections Realty.
If you’ve considered Bushwick or Bed-Stuy in Brooklyn, which are getting pricey, here’s another part of the borough that delivers value — in exchange for longer subway commutes. This spacious 1-bedroom is in immaculate shape, and can fit a king-size bed. Plus there are four huge closets to provide plenty of storage. Listing by Melissa Leifer of Keller Williams.
How many times have you seen a king-size bed next to a full-size bureau in a bedroom in NYC? Right. Not many — especially at the $350K price point. Kensington is an underdog section of Brooklyn that delivers great value for those priced out of Park Slope. Listing by Alexandra Reddish and Madeleine Gallagher of Compass.
