Located in the Art Deco Woodstock Tower at 320 East 42nd Street, this studio co-op is small but mighty. A 3/4 full-sized Murphy bed frees up space during the day, while four generously sized closets help keep things clean and open. The compact kitchen doesn’t sacrifice functionality, and two large south-facing windows bring in plenty of light. The apartment is asking $319,000.

If you don’t mind sleeping in a lofted space, this $465,000 Upper West Side studio is in a great location and has tons of historic charm. Located on the second floor of the brownstone at 128 West 78th Street, it’s just down the block from the Museum of Natural History and Central Park. It has gorgeous details like carved wood moldings, stained-glass transoms, wood radiator covers and shutters, and exposed brick.

Cool Listings, Gramercy Park

This Gramercy studio is just about 230 square feet, but it’s been designed with an intelligence and sophistication that makes the tiny footprint seem less obvious or obstructive. And when you factor in that it comes with a coveted key to Gramercy Park for its $395,000 price tag, it’s even better. The apartment is located at the 38 Gramercy Park East co-op and boasts 11-foot ceilings, mirrored walls, and a renovated kitchen and bathroom.

The gorgeous recessed windows at this co-op completely transform the small space and set the stage for its vintage-y decor. Located at 322 West 88th Street, the one-bedroom is currently on the market for $595,000. And though there’s not a ton of square footage, it’s in the heart of the Upper West Side and is full of pre-war charm.

It’s not rare for an Upper East Side studio to be priced in the low six-digits, but an ask of $320,000 definitely made us do a doubletake. Located at 331 East 92nd Street, the petite pad is modern, cheerful, and perfectly laid out so you don’t feel closed off in one room. Plus, the Yorkville neighborhood is one of the best for convenience and a young-but-not-too-young scene.

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).

For some reason, the Upper West Side is a hotbed for ridiculously small and semi-uninhabitable apartments, but this “studio” at 276 West 71st Street by far takes the cake (h/t Reddit). At first glance, the SRO could easily be mistaken for a prison cell, but in fact, the 49-square-foot (yes, you read that right) apartment is asking $510/month plus a 15 percent broker’s fee. Beware of the sticky NYC summers, though; as the listing generously divulges, “No Air conditioners are allowed. You can only use a fan.”

Cool Listings, Interiors, Soho

When eco-conscious architect and entrepreneur Graham Hill listed his famously tiny 420-square-foot apartment in Soho, we thought a unit couldn’t get any smaller. But Hill has done it again, listing another micro apartment at 150 Sullivan Street for $750,000. The itty-bitty digs, dubbed LifeEdited 2, measures just 350 square feet but manages to seat 10 for dinner, host two guests and have space for a home office.

6sqft previously featured this unique West Village studio for its clever design back in 2014, when its owners, Jourdan Lawlor and Tobin Ludwig, turned the 242-square-foot pied-a-terre at 352 West 12th Street into a marvel of Swiss Army knife-like usefulness with brilliant design and custom solutions. The pair, who bought the charming co-op for just $270,000, christened it “The Wee Cottage” and invested about $33,000 in a renovation that became the stuff of micro-apartment legend, having been featured in numerous publications and heaped with accolades (Refinery29 named it the Coolest Tiny Apartment in NYC, for example, and it’s an Instagram favorite). They rented it out for $3,000 a month in 2016, and now it’s for sale asking $500,000.

Cool Listings, Quirky Homes, Upper West Side 

For such a stereotypically well-off and elegant neighborhood, the Upper West Side certainly has its share of much-less-than-glamorous listings. A couple months ago, we featured a 68-square-foot (yes, you read that right) SRO with a communal bathroom that was asking a whopping $950 a month. Now, a similarly dismal pad has hit the market asking $1,000 a month (h/t Brick Underground)! Though the listing doesn’t reveal its square footage, it does make sure to specify, “this is not a studio it is a single room” and that it has a shared bathroom. But it also is quick to gloat that the “dorm-style” home comes with a mini fridge and hot plate.
