Not to toot our own horn, but we may have found the greatest deal in all of Manhattan! The Upper East Side offers easy access to Central Park, Museum Mile, and endless eateries. It also tends to be on the pricier side. That’s where our Deal of the Week comes in. This Yorkville 1BR, 210 E. 90th St. #4A, is both well located and super cute. And the price is so incredible, it’s almost hard to believe.
The Price: $299,000
Yorkville is a sub-market of the Upper East Side. The median asking price for an UES home is a high $1.6 million, according to the StreetEasy Data Dashboard. That puts our Deal of the Week at a fraction of the area’s average price. It’s actually less than one-fifth of the median!
Buyers who put down the 20% minimum down payment of $59,800 can expect to see monthly payments of $1,955. That includes a mortgage payment of $998 and a maintenance fee of $957. By comparison, the median asking rent in the UES is $2,700. Wow.
Why You’ll Love It…
There’s plenty to love about this Yorkville 1BR besides the price! Starting with the large, open living area, soaked in sunlight from a triple-wide window. And it doesn’t get more classic than hardwood floors with an exposed-brick fireplace.
A renovated, galley-style kitchen separates the living space from the bedroom. It boasts full-size stainless steel appliances and ample cabinet space. Plus, high ceilings mean you can store things on top of the cabinets, too. Our Deal of the Week has excellent closet space as well, with two closets in the nicely sized bedroom and a third in the living room.
Finally, this gem is set in a prewar co-op, on a tree-lined street complete with its own small park. The building is pet friendly, with a live-in super and common laundry. It’s super close to the Q, 4, 5, and 6 trains at 86th Street. And as a bonus, there’s a Whole Foods two blocks south.

… And Why You Might Not
The living room window in this Yorkville 1BR is substantial. But the windows in the bedroom and bathroom are very small and face an airshaft. In addition, the unit is on the fourth floor of a walk-up building, so there are a few flights of stairs to deal with. But it’s a very solid apartment overall. And for this price, you probably won’t find better in Manhattan!
