And if you ever need to stretch out, the studio is located in Chelsea’s massive London Terrace Towers—a virtual mini-city in itself—which offers residents a ton of amenities.

138 Broadway, Smith Gray Building, Williamsburg lofts

For under $1 million, you can own this uber-trendy South Williamsburg loft at 138 Broadway, the historic Smith-Gray Building. Though the loft is technically a studio, it has a separate kitchen and plenty of room in its 925-square-foot layout for individual sleeping, living, and dining areas. But what makes this unit even more desirable is its impeccable contemporary-western vibes–a mix of historic elements such as whitewashed brick walls and wooden ceilings with modern nods to the style like lots of caramel leather furniture and bold, geometric textiles.

Located in the 1930s Eastgate co-ops at 235 East 73rd Street, the apartment is bright and sunny and surprisingly spacious with a separate sleeping alcove and roughly 400 square feet of space to work with.

Cool Listings, Tudor City

25 Tudor City Place

25 Tudor City Place, also known as Tudor Tower, was one of the original buildings built at Tudor City, one of Manhattan’s largest residential developments conceived by visionary real estate developer Frederick F. French in 1927 as a “suburb in the city.” The building retains its old-world charm with a well-maintained Gothic lobby and historic details in all 443 units, including beamed ceilings, hardwood floors, and casement windows. Like many of the pint-sized units that Tudor City is well-known for, this one, on the market for $335,000, offers a price tag to match.

$395K Tudor City co-op is a man cave in waiting

By Dana Schulz, Wed, December 19, 2018

Woodstock Tower at 320 East 42nd Street is one of the most charming of Tudor City’s collection of elegant co-op buildings, and in keeping with the complex’s pre-war charm is this studio asking less than $400,000. Like so many of the itty-bitty units in Tudor City, this 240-square-foot makes the most of its footprint with a Murphy bed and built-in storage, and in this case, a very refined and handsome design that would make this the perfect man cave.

Cool Listings, Upper West Side 

The age-old question for apartment-hunting New Yorkers is space or location? And if you fall into the latter camp, this bright and cozy studio on the Upper West Side at 140 West 69th Street may be for you. It’s itty bitty, but there’s still a functional kitchen, clever storage built-ins, a roomy living area, and a lofted bed to open things up. And best of all, it’s located at the corner of 69th and Broadway, right near Lincoln Center, the 1/2/3 trains, Trader Joes, and Central Park and a quick walk to Columbus Circle and Riverside Park. Does all that warrant the small space’s $2,500/month ask?

Clinton Hill, Cool Listings

It’s hard to find a decent studio these days for under $2,000 a month, let alone one with 12-foot ceilings, original exposed brick, and plenty of natural light. But this Clinton Hill cutie at 126 Willoughby Avenue is asking $1,850. It is, however, less than 300-square-feet. But what it lacks in space it makes up for in location; it’s just six blocks from Fort Greene Park, three blocks from the G at Clinton-Washington, and in the heart of all the neighborhood hotspots along DeKalb and Myrtle Avenues.
