The age-old question for apartment-hunting New Yorkers is space or location? And if you fall into the latter camp, this bright and cozy studio on the Upper West Side at 140 West 69th Street may be for you. It’s itty bitty, but there’s still a functional kitchen, clever storage built-ins, a roomy living area, and a lofted bed to open things up. And best of all, it’s located at the corner of 69th and Broadway, right near Lincoln Center, the 1/2/3 trains, Trader Joes, and Central Park and a quick walk to Columbus Circle and Riverside Park. Does all that warrant the small space’s $2,500/month ask?

The fifth-floor apartment doesn’t reveal its square footage, but we’re guessing it’s under 300 square feet. But the bay window (complete with built-in window seat/storage) and 11-foot ceilings make it feel larger and keep things bright and airy.

The listing says there’s a “huge walk-in closet” adjacent to the front door, above which is some open shelving. There’s even more clever storage in the surprisingly spacious kitchen (there’s even a dishwasher!), including a good deal of cabinet space, narrow center island (in front of which is a super space-saving fold-up table), and corner nook of built-in shelves. The bathroom is behind a cool, barn-like door and the lofted sleeping area fits a queen-sized mattress.

The only catch is that initial leases must be for two years; after that renewals can be yearly. The co-op building, known as Spencer Arms, allows subletting and pieds-a-terre. It also has a roof deck, live-in super, laundry room, and media room.
