It’s a hard thing in this city to find a studio that doesn’t induce claustrophobia and is still affordable, but this charming $375,000 co-op at 156 West 73rd Street rises to the challenge. Not only is it located less than two blocks from Central Park and a half block from the 1, 2, 3 trains at 72nd Street, but thanks to 10-foot ceilings, oversized street-facing windows, a sleeping loft, and separate kitchen, it feels a whole lot larger.
Historic details like exposed brick and a decorative fireplace add to the unit’s charm, while the nook under the sleeping loft is perfect for a mini office or additional storage, which can also be found above the kitchen. There’s even enough space for a small dining room area before entering the compact yet efficient kitchen.
This stretch of 73rd Street is a quintessential Upper West Side brownstone block. In addition to the Central Park and subway proximity, it’s right near Trader Joes, all the restaurants and bars along Amsterdam Avenue, and a few blocks from Riverside Park.
