A 600-square-foot terrace is big for any apartment, but for an alcove studio, it’s downright palatial. This just-renovated co-op at 600 West 111th Street in Morningside Heights is modern, bright, and wrapped in an L-shaped terrace overlooking the Hudson River and Riverside Park with views to the George Washington Bridge. It’s hard to believe, but the asking price is $650,000.

Cool Listings, Upper East Side

This Upper East Side townhouse at 17 East 74th Street was built in 1869 in the neo-Federal style. And though it retains this historic pedigree from the street, inside it’s been modernized with opulent finishes and a classicaly elegant style. According to the Post, the home, which is on the market for $18 million, is owned by Sandi Feinberg, widow of the late philanthropist Herbert Feinberg. They bought the five-story house in 1989 for $2.5 million and then spent three years on a renovation that included adding a 46-foot-long saltwater lap pool and hot tub on the lower level, as well as spiffing up the garden and roof deck.

Sure, there are plenty of swanky penthouses with multiple outdoor spaces, but how many of them have an open-air lightwell?

In addition, there are two terraces on the second floor and a huge roof deck with an outdoor kitchen.

The Heights section of Jersey City is definitely up-and-coming, with plenty of awesome restaurants and parks, but it’s still more affordable than the Downtown part of town. Case in point, this three-bedroom condo at 209 Hutton Street. It occupies the first floor of a modern townhouse and has three bedrooms, a backyard, and private parking (a rarity even across the Hudson), and it’s asking just $620,000.
