This charming fifth-floor pre-war co-op just two blocks from Union Square, asking $849,000, has plenty of room to expand beyond its current two bedrooms. Situated around a central kitchen, the apartment even comes with instructions (in the form of alternate floor plans, shown in the gallery below). On a quiet landmarked townhouse block in the heart of Gramercy, the Beaux-Arts co-op building at 210 East 17th Street is a well-maintained walk-up.

This two-floor co-op at 200 West Houston Street, asking $2.695 million, may be on a busy Village thoroughfare, but its location across from the critic favorite Film Forum movie theater–and screening-room-ready lower level–might make it the perfect spot for someone who wants to immerse themselves in film. There’s room to configure the space differently (it’s currently set up as a one-bedroom), and each level has a separate entrance.

Situated within the amenity-filled Morningside Gardens co-operative complex, this two-bedroom home at 70 La Salle Street in Morningside Heights was renovated less than a year ago. The result is a cheerful and chic mix of color, pattern, and well-configured space that’s highlighted by an abundance of natural light. With ceilings of over nine feet tall and floor-to-ceiling windows, this corner unit, asking $807,000, maximizes space with plenty of closets in addition to large and livable rooms.

This combined two-unit co-op in the architectural gem that is the Emery Roth-designed San Remo at 145 Central Park West (where Demi Moore’s former pad just hit the market for $50M), asking $25 million, has the Central Park and Manhattan skyline views you’d expect from the iconic building’s north tower. Inside, the over-5,500-square-foot corner residence is just as impressive, with an architect-led renovation and interiors by renowned designer Bunny Williams that has preserved the home’s Art Deco character while sparing no expense on modern convenience. The 14-room home, currently owned by money manager Peter W. May and his wife, Leni May (h/t New York Times), is configured as three bedrooms and a library with an additional study and a media room.

On midtown Manhattan’s west side, next door to the Theater District and near Hudson Yards, this compact, stylish, cozy co-op in the heart of Hell’s Kitchen at 349 West 44th Street would make a charming and convenient pied-a-terre. At a (relatively) compact asking price of $429,000, all the basics are present in a pristine renovation, with enough artfully created closet and storage space to keep things as elegant and tidy as they look in the listing.

Under $1 million in Nolita sounds nearly impossible, but this one-bedroom co-op at 243 Mulberry Street, asking $899,000 (and a low maintenance fee) is as legit as it is cute. The gut-renovated three-flight walk-up has classic downtown charm and a mint renovation that incorporates modern convenience, contemporary flair, and colorful details.

Fans of Amazon’s popular Modern Love series will remember this co-op as the building where Anne Hathaway’s character lives in Episode 3. But architecture buffs may recognize that the striking Victorian Gothic structure was designed by none other than Calvert Vaux as the Astor Memorial School in the late 1880s. The parlor floor unit inside this landmarked building at 256 Mott Street has just listed for $3.5 million, offering the rare chance to own a truly historic residence with a prime Nolita address right across the street from Old St. Patrick’s Cathedral.

Part of the Greenwich Village Historic District, this bright studio at 715 Washington Street is now on the market for a cool $575,000. The floor-through unit—previously configured as a one-bedroom—might be small in space but it’s big on charm, with pre-war details including original hardwood floors, painted brick walls, built-in shelving, and a decorative fireplace in the sleeping area.

The main living area in this charming Upper West Side studio at 123 West 80th Street only adds up to 240 square feet, but within that are all the old-world details you could ask for. For starters, there’s that enormous carved wood fireplace with a mirror that will at least add the perception of more space. Other features include original parquet wood floors, an elegant chandelier, and carved south-facing windows with restored shutters. The unit was originally listed at the beginning of the month for $539,000 and just got a $10,000 cut on its asking price. The central location—just steps away from the American Natural History Museum—certainly contributes to that.
