Living in Midtown South might not be every New Yorker’s dream, but for a Manhattan newbie who works nearby and is looking to buy a starter pad, this $500,000 studio is perfect. Located at 159 Madison Avenue, between East 32nd and 33rd Streets, the apartment is within walking distance to almost all of Midtown. Plus, it’s got a huge arched window that brings in tons of lights, as well as very good closet space.

Upon entering there are two closets, as well as a small alcove off which is a large walk-in closet, open shelving, and the bathroom. From there, the galley kitchen might be small, but it has full-size appliances, including a dishwasher, and a breakfast bar.

The main living area is roughly 250 square feet and feels even larger thanks to the 10-foot ceilings and double-wide arched window.

As the listing notes, “Madison Square Park is 10 minutes south and Bryant Park is 10 minutes north,” while almost all major subway lines, as well as the PATH, NJ Transit and the LIRR at Penn Station, and Metro-North at Grand Central, are within walking distance. The 12-story co-op building was built in 1911 and has a total of 112 units. It offers a full-time doorman, storage units on every floor (available for purchase), laundry on every floor, and a beautifully landscaped roof deck. Guarantors, co-purchasers, parents buying for children, pied-à-terres, and dogs up to 40 pounds are all allowed with board approval.
