Located in Noho’s nondescript-modernist Bleecker Court at 77 Bleecker Street, this unique home was designed in 2003 by architect and educator Diane Lewis for an art-world client who wanted, according to the listing, “a cross between Mies van der Rohe and Barbarella.” She definitely achieved that goal, creating a downtown apartment that’s perfect for anyone with collections to archive and display or who is seeking a sleek, pristine home that does a lot in a small space. It’s asking $1,075,000.

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.

A full-service pre-war building at a classic Upper East Side address a few blocks from Central Park usually comes with a bigger price tag, but this $395,000 studio at 205 East 78th Street offers those perks, plus move-in ready convenience. Open western views from this compact 17th-floor home join hardwood floors, high beamed ceilings, and clever storage solutions to make the most of the minimal space.

6sqft previously featured this unique West Village studio for its clever design in 2014, when its owners, Jourdan Lawlor and Tobin Ludwig, who bought the charming co-op for a mere $270,000, transformed the 242-square-foot pied-a-terre at 352 West 12th Street into a marvel of brilliant design and space-optimizing solutions. The pair dubbed it “The Wee Cottage” and invested in a renovation that became the stuff of micro-apartment legend (Refinery29 named it the Coolest Tiny Apartment in NYC, and it’s an Instagram favorite). After a spin as a rental, they put their mini-masterpiece on the market last year for $500,000. Now its price has gotten a wee bit smaller, currently asking $429,000 (h/t Curbed).

The sweet details at this classic Cobble Hill studio will distract you from the caveats of small-space living, including a charming fireplace framed by exposed brick to anchor the living space. And if that doesn’t get you, the centrally located address at 177 Amity Street certainly earns this petite, 350- square-foot pad it’s $395,000 asking price.
At only 300 square feet, this Prospect Heights studio is very small, but its thoughtful design doesn’t miss a thing. The co-op at 400 Lincoln Place last sold in 2012 for only $85,000 and has been almost entirely reimagined since then. A custom built-in Murphy bed, storage solutions throughout, and a sleek stainless kitchen earn its $339,000 price tag.
