Except for the $475K price, this charming studio embodies the old East Village spirit

Anyone who’s been around long enough to remember what the East Village used to be like–before the days of shiny condos and SoulCycle–might say this rather romantic little 425-square-foot co-op studio at 88 East Third Street is just about as old school as you can get without having your bathtub in the kitchen. Yes, there’s a Starbucks on the corner, but this quintessentially quirky-cool block is still home to the infamous Hell’s Angels East Village clubhouse at number 77 (right next door to the New York Law School dorm). They won’t cause you any trouble, but those bad boys still ride, so we hope you like the sound of motorcycle engines.

This cozy East Village aerie looks like it’s been renovated some time in this century in the classic neighborhood style–lots of exposed brick painted white, wood floors, wood beams and tall windows that open onto the fire escape and to the street below. The kitchen looks nicely renovated with tastefully chosen modernist wood cabinets and butcher block counters.

According to the listing, a murphy bed has been installed to save space, which is a pretty good idea in a studio this size.

The building’s roof deck is yet another magical place where many an East Village dream can be lived; the shared backyard looks pretty magical, period. It’s equipped with a grill for barbecuing and some big Adirondack chairs for contemplation. Unlike some parts of the neighborhood, this spot is just a couple of blocks from the F train–and near too many restaurants, bars, shops and cultural venues to count.
