The Lower East Side and East Village have long attracted New Yorkers who like their neighborhoods funky and fun. For buyers looking to make these downtown areas their home, options are endless. Choose from prewar co-ops, brownstones, and old-school tenement buildings, mixed with an occasional condo or new development. This week we take aim at NYC apartments for $600K or less in these action-packed neighborhoods. Here are five popular picks.
For our first NYC apartment for $600K or less, we head to the Lower East Side’s expansive East River Co-ops. True to the complex’s name, check out that balcony overlooking the East River and Williamsburg Bridge! At 800 square feet, this is a lot of real estate for the price. Besides the large balcony, other features include a foyer entry, an eat-in kitchen with dishwasher, and a sizable corner bedroom with two exposures.
Our first stop in the East Village is this renovated 1-bedroom. Exposed brick, high ceilings, and big windows give it a loft-like vibe. The open kitchen sports a dishwasher and granite counters, with pendant lights highlighting a long breakfast bar. And you will not feel cramped in that large bathroom. This NYC apartment for $600K is part of a well-maintained co-op with generous purchasing and sublet rules. In addition, all utilities and taxes are included in the low monthlies.

Here’s another outstanding unit in the East River Co-ops. It’s a high-floor 1-bedroom with a balcony and an oversized picture window, again overlooking the river. A very generous floor plan offers a foyer entry, dining area, and big living room with two exposures. The windowed kitchen has a dishwasher and plenty of room to eat-in. There’s also great closet space: four altogether, including a walk-in in the spacious bedroom.
Our next NYC apartment for $600K is an exceptionally well-appointed studio at the St. Mark. This post-war co-op boasts a great location where the East Village meets Greenwich Village. The unit is designed for streamlined comfort, with a wall of windows and a Murphy bed with built-in storage. A remodeled, high-end kitchen with dishwasher is neatly tucked to the side. Well done!

There’s also a gracious foyer entry with closet, a very sizable bedroom, and a windowed eat-in kitchen. Low monthlies help put this home in reach for many buyers.
