Coming in just slightly under our budget is this high-floor studio in Murray Hill at $599,000. The 14th-floor co-op at 10 Park Avenue, which was built in 1932 and rises 26 stories, is owned by Analisse Taft-Gersten, founder of the ALT for Living design store, and her husband James Gersten, co-founder of taco chain La Esquina, as the New York Post reported. Thanks to novel elements like the raised entrance gallery that can double as a dining nook or office and a separate dressing area leading to the bathroom, the small space feels bigger. Other nice touches include the subway tile and custom cabinets in the kitchen, large casement windows, and beamed ceilings.
