Kensington tends to be an overlooked neighborhood, but it’s close to Green-Wood Cemetery and the southeastern end of Prospect Park, and this building at 350 Ocean Parkway is also right near all the shops and restaurants on Cortelyou Road and Church Avenue. Plus, the price is most certainly right for this $599,000 co-op. The listing says it’s one-and-a-half bedrooms, but the second room is still plenty bright and big. And speaking of bright, the unit gets natural light from three exposures, perfect for this lovely plant collection.

Norwegian model and entrepreneur Sophia Lie stayed true to her roots when outfitting her NYC residence. Located at the co-op 110 Thompson Street and recently listed for 625,000, the alcove studio is described as a “Scandinavian sanctuary in Soho,” and we can’t disagree. From the pale color scheme to the simple built-ins to the minimalist furniture, everything about the fifth-floor mini-loft screams hygge-chic, and if you’re feeling this vibe, it’s available fully furnished.

Tribeca loft living is at its finest at this four-bedroom riverfront duplex. Located at 288 West Street, known as the Medium Lipstick Building, the brick warehouse building was built in 1855 as a spice storehouse and has since been converted to 14 co-op units. This particular apartment has all the classic architectural details– beamed ceilings, wooden columns, exposed brick, arched windows–but with modern additions like a floating glass-enclosed staircase, double-sided fireplace, sleek white built-ins, and a sauna.

Perhaps the pandemic lifestyle has inspired you to go more minimalist. If so, this alcove studio on the Upper East Side may be pretty appealing. Located at 205 East 63rd Street, just east of Third Avenue, the legal one-bedroom has a futuristic vibe with stark white walls, porcelain floors, and furniture, save for the strategically placed pops of lime green. For just $350,000, there’s a foyer, full kitchen, large living room (currently outfitted with a modern Murphy bed to free up even more space), and a whopping six closets.

Does quarantine have you dreaming about more apartment space? How about 3,000 square feet inside and 2,200 square feet outside? That’s what you’ll get at this penthouse at 430 Greenwich Street in Tribeca. The lucky new owner who drops $9,275,000 on the co-op will be the first tenant; previously a raw loft space, it was recently renovated and custom-designed by architect Robert Marino. Not only did he add an irrigated roof garden with an outdoor kitchen, but he complimented the interior’s original features like exposed timber beams and steel supports with super-chic additions including imported Italianate bronze work.

Located at 204 West 92nd Street, the 1,100-square-foot apartment has three bedrooms on two levels, as well as a sunny garden patio that’s “perfect for grilling, entertaining, or private sunbathing,” says the listing.

It’s not all the time that you find an actual one-bedroom for under $500,000, but this Sunset Park co-op is priced well below that and is quite charming to boot. Reclaimed wood shelving and a country-chic kitchen add to the rustic feel already in place from the exposed brick wall and wood ceiling beams. At 683 41st Street, the location is great too; it’s directly across from Sunset Park, just a couple blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, and a quick walk to the D train at 9th Avenue and the N, R trains at 45th Street.
