It’s not rare for an Upper East Side studio to be priced in the low six-digits, but an ask of $320,000 definitely made us do a doubletake. Located at 331 East 92nd Street, the petite pad is modern, cheerful, and perfectly laid out so you don’t feel closed off in one room. Plus, the Yorkville neighborhood is one of the best for convenience and a young-but-not-too-young scene.

There’s so much to love about this one-bedroom co-op at 425 East 78th Street, located in the Yorkville area of the Upper East Side. First, it’s got a classy, cozy feel that’ll make you think you stepped into a family home. Then there’s the duplex layout–it’s on the top floor, and the bedroom suite occupies the second floor and has high ceilings, a dressing room, and an en-suite bathroom. And, of course, there’s the price. At $610,000, it’s a perfect starter place.

The hopping history of German breweries in Yorkville

By Lucie Levine, Thu, October 10, 2019

If you spent the first weekend of October hoisting lager and Oomph-ing it up for Oktoberfest, then you joined a long and proud tradition of German beer production and consumption in New York City. In fact, New York’s German-owned breweries were once the largest beer-making operations in the country, and the brewers themselves grew into regional and national power-players, transforming Major League Baseball, holding elected office, and, perhaps most importantly, sponsoring goat beauty pageants in Central Park. While brewing flourished in both Manhattan and Brooklyn throughout the 19th century, the city’s largest breweries were clustered in Yorkville. In fact, much of the neighborhood’s storied German cultural history can be traced to the rise of brewing in the area, and the German-language shops, cultural institutions and social halls that sprang up to cater to the brewery workers.
