7 NYC apartments with fireplaces for under $1M

October 22, 2020

Make staying home this winter more enjoyable with your very own working fireplace. While the city’s stock of apartments with wood-burning fireplaces won’t be getting larger after the city banned the construction of them a few years ago, there are still plenty of apartments that offer a cozy fireside amenity. Despite being somewhat of a rarity, owning a home with a fireplace doesn’t have to break the bank. We’ve found seven apartments with working fireplaces currently on the market for under $1 million.
