Biggest drawback: Like any studio, the unit is snug and may not accommodate much furniture once a bed is in place. Additionally, the bathroom is relatively no-frills, but does have a window. Though the studio may not match the glamour of nearby UES co-ops, it’s still a good deal in a desirable location.
