It’s a new year! Could it also be time for a new apartment? If you’re looking to take advantage of the lower prices in Manhattan right now, our Deal of the Week is right up your alley. This South Harlem 2BR, 1919 Madison Ave. #410, has space, style, and storage, and it’s in a building full of amenities. There’s even private outdoor space in the form of a sweet balcony. Read on to find out why we love this deal.

The Price: $512,000

The median asking price for a home in Central Harlem is $996,500, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at almost half the average price for the neighborhood.

Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $102,400 can expect to see monthly payments of $2,922. This includes a mortgage payment of $1,803 and a maintenance fee of $1,119.

Why You’ll Love It…

First of all, both bedrooms in this South Harlem 2BR are legit. They’re located on opposite ends of the living room for privacy, and they each have a big double window and a good-sized closet. But most importantly, they’re both spacious, capable of fitting a queen-sized bed. It’s not one real bedroom and one awkwardly carved-out space, like so many 2-bedrooms in Manhattan are.

In addition, the finishes on this unit are stunning. Not only are the hardwood floors great, but take a look at that living room ceiling! There’s more than enough space for a dining set, in addition to the kitchen’s marble-topped pass-through breakfast bar. The kitchen also contains one of the most coveted NYC apartment features: a dishwasher. And the high-end bathroom features a Jacuzzi tub and custom tile.

If you want some time outdoors, our Deal of the Week is beautifully located directly across the street from vibrant Marcus Garvey Park. But you also have your very own private balcony, which is large enough for some patio furniture. And the building also offers a landscaped courtyard, in addition to amenities like a gym, laundry, parking, and a full-time doorman.

… And Why You Might Not

There appear to be income restrictions on this South Harlem 2BR, based on the listing description, although it’s not entirely clear. Be sure to ask! While the front of the building faces Marcus Garvey Park, this particular unit faces north, which means no park views. Additionally, the kitchen is mildly dated, with an awkward mix of stainless steel and white appliances. But all in all, wow what a deal.
