This week’s list of top apartments for around $400,000 is a doozy! We found sweet studios and 1-bedrooms everywhere from Brooklyn to Manhattan to Queens. No two of these enticing apartments are alike, but all are great in their own way. So stretch your imagination — which NYC apartment for $400K would you pick?
Shoppers seeking value are wise to check out this inviting NYC apartment for $400K. Just a few blocks south of Prospect Park, the spacious 1-bedroom is set in a co-op with an elevator, parking, and laundry. A big and brand-new kitchen is the hub, boasting a breakfast bar, dishwasher, and glass tile backsplash. It opens to a bright living room with nice hardwoods. Monthlies under $480 boost the unit’s affordability. Elizabeth Kohen at Garfield Realty is the seller’s agent.
This 1-bedroom in one of Brooklyn’s most beloved neighborhoods has a lot to offer, especially for a home cook. The new kitchen has cherry cabinets, granite counters, and stainless appliances, including a dishwasher. Built-ins in the living room keep things neat and tidy. The remodeled bathroom features a deep, jetted tub and two-door entry. There’s a caveat here, though. This is a land-lease building, which could make financing difficult. The remarkable $375K price reflects that. Contact a StreetEasy Expert on the listing to learn more. (StreetEasy Experts are agents with proven experience in a particular building or area.)

Our next apartment jumps a bit above price point. But we think it’s worth it: A key to Gramercy Park comes with this super-cool alcove studio! That’s one of the most exclusive perks a Manhattanite could hope for. And there’s a celebrity connection, too. This is the former pied-à-terre of Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Rufus Wainwright. Which certainly explains the eccentric, rococo decor. It’s a niche dwelling for sure, but what a nifty little niche. If it strikes your fancy, reach out to seller’s agent Ivana Tagliamonte at Compass for more details.
We head uptown for our next NYC apartment for $400K, right across from the wonderful Fort Tryon Park. It’s set in a pet-friendly co-op that offers in-building laundry and parking. The renovated kitchen has a dishwasher, with plenty of room for a dining table and comfy furniture in the bright living room. And the spacious bedroom boasts two closets and a great corner window. Very low monthlies, too. Thomas Rainey and Matthew Bizzarro of the Bizzarro Agency have the listing.

Jackson Heights is the final stop on our tour of NYC apartments for $400K. This 840-square-foot 1-bedroom shows off great bones and space. It’s a prime example of why this Queens enclave is so popular. Set in The Madison, a classic prewar co-op in the historic district, the apartment opens to a foyer entry with built-ins. Arched doorways and a bright bay window in the living room set the tone. There’s also a windowed, eat-in kitchen and a huge bedroom with two exposures. Sean C. Clancey at Nest Seekers is the listing agent.
