It’s worth noting that there aren’t too many sixth-floor walk-ups in NYC, but this sunny pre-war co-op is one of them. If that’s not a problem for you, the lovely two-bedroom at 71 East 3rd Street in the East Village could be quite a steal for under a million. It’s back on the market for $995,000 after changing hands for $975,000 in 2016. The floor plan’s a little odd (it appears that two smaller apartments have been combined), but it’s your space to configure any way you’d like and there are plenty of options–and the building has a gorgeous roof deck. The apartment’s interior features stylish, modern updates to compliment exposed brick and classic details.

40 Gramercy Park North

Here’s a rare opportunity to own one of only five remaining single-family townhouses with a Gramercy Park address and one of the city’s most coveted accessories: keys to the famous neighboring park. A former 19th-century boarding house with rooms “decorated with ferns, foliage, and Autumn flowers,” according to an 1895 article in The Times, 40 Gramercy Park North is one of the last survivors from the initial period of development around the park, now sandwiched between two large apartment buildings. For $14,950,000 the six-story home carries plenty of historic charm but has been updated for modern living, complete with an elevator.
