December 17, 2020

There’s no place like New York during the holidays. Even in the middle of a pandemic, the city manages to still feel magical this time of year. And Rockefeller Center, with its iconic Christmas Tree, ice skating rink, and Rockettes at Radio City Music Hall, remains the city’s crown jewel of the season. For those who want to feel festive all year round, we’ve found the best apartments located within walking distance to Rockefeller Plaza and priced below $1.5 million, from a $530,000 charming pre-war pad in Midtown East to a $1.27 million Theater District one-bedroom with 12-foot ceilings and a shared outdoor terrace with a fireplace.

With a grand entrance gallery, sunken living room, and beamed ceilings, this one-bedroom at 25 West 54th Street exudes pre-war elegance. Now on the market for $549,000, the tenth-floor corner unit is nice and bright, thanks to the wrapping windows in the living room and dining area.

The apartment sits in Regent House, an Art Deco co-op constructed in 1939 by architect William M.D. Dowling. Residents have access to a laundry room, back patio, and a large roof deck. The building is located directly across from MoMA, surrounded by some of the city’s best cultural offerings, restaurants, and retail.
