When it comes to studios in Manhattan, a good measure of whether it’s “spacious” is if both a bed and couch can fit. Not only is that the case for this newly available co-op on the Upper West Side, but the residence, now asking $385,000, also has two closets and a dishwasher, both features that are somewhat of a rarity for studios in the city. Located at 235 West 102nd Street, the home is in a prime Upper West Side neighborhood, with Riverside Park just two blocks from the building.

A duplex in one of New York City’s most famous buildings is now available. Located at 1 West 67th Street on the Upper West Side, the neo-Gothic style Hotel des Artistes was built in 1915 as an artist’s co-op building and has been home to notable residents over the last century, including the dancer Isadora Duncan, former NYC mayor John Lindsay, and artist Norman Rockwell. On the market for $3,495,000 is a one-bedroom with soaring 20-foot ceilings, colossal south-facing windows, and a balcony overlooking the great room.

Located less than a block from Central Park, this Upper West Side home is a rare co-op that’s anything but traditional, though it has the gracious proportions of the neighborhood’s finest homes. Now asking $3,650,000, the top-floor unit at 33 West 93rd Street has walls and ceilings of glass, giving it the feel of an artist’s studio, complete with inspirational light. The three-bedroom apartment also features a home office/den and a private balcony.

They don’t make rooms this size anymore. This sprawling co-op in the iconic Beresford at 211 Central Park West boasts the pre-war proportions that make even the humble staff rooms (yes, plural) bigger than the average Manhattan bedroom. This 10-room corner apartment, asking $14,200,000, gets the kind of views and light you’d expect from the prime parkside spot. A vast gallery, staff rooms, and gracious spaces at every turn mean the home’s five bedrooms could become more–or opened up to accommodate a grand ballroom.

The ornate five-story 1889 townhouse at 251 West 76th Street sits on one of the Upper West Side’s loveliest blocks, surrounded by historic homes. Asking $8,500,000, this multi-family property contains seven apartments and plenty of options. A four-bedroom lower unit anchors the home, and though it includes the building’s cellar, the 3,000-square-foot space boasts designer finishes and all of the personality you’d expect in an uptown townhouse. The floors above currently hold six rental apartments ranging from one to three bedrooms.

Near the top of the sleek glass tower at 10 West End Avenue, this 3,383-square-foot condominium residence shares the floor with only one other apartment. The two-unit combination means there are two distinct wings–and two full kitchens–within its sprawling footprint, with a four-bedroom (with room for more) configuration that’s perfect for entertaining while maintaining private living quarters. Glass-wrapped rooms with three exposures mean panoramic views of the Hudson River, the George Washington Bridge, and the Empire State Building through floor-to-ceiling windows.

Pre-war apartments with their high ceilings and gracious proportions rarely come in condo form, so this 3,200-square-foot condominium residence in The Olcott at 27 West 72nd Street is something of a find to start with. In addition to three-convertible-to-four bedrooms, the Upper West Side home, asking $9,200,000, has plenty of indoor entertaining space. But the best thing about it might be the sprawling terrace that’s the size of a townhouse garden–all in a full-service building on a Central Park block.

When an apartment at the iconic Robert A.M. Stern-designed 15 Central Park West hits the market, a certain kind of discerning buyer takes notice. There’s a mansion-sized 8,000-square-foot combo unit available in the coveted building for $58,000,000, so this available half-floor two-bedroom residence seems like a downright steal at $13,450,000. With interiors designed by Axel Vervoordt, the 26th-floor unit spans 2,367 square feet, with the building’s signature high ceilings and, best of all, views that sweep out over Central Park, the Hudson River, and beyond.

Actress and comedian Amy Schumer is selling her Upper West Side penthouse at 190 Riverside Drive, the Wall Street Journal reports. Asking $15,000,000, Schumer purchased what she calls her “Manhattan dream apartment” for $12,150,000 in 2016. Surrounded on every side and on the roof above by 3,000 square feet of verdant planted terraces, and centered around a glass-wrapped solarium living room, the five-bedroom, 4,500-square-foot condominium is indeed a New York City dream home–even if it’s no longer a secret. Schumer told the Journal she and her husband, chef Chris Fischer, are moving–likely to Brooklyn–to be closer to their son’s school.
