More like it: my second look at an “averagely priced” NYC home ($325K here) revealed a lovely, 500 sq-ft. co-op at Riverside & 93rd.
I loved the brick fire-place, reminding me of my salmon-brick childhood home in Pittsburgh. I sometimes forget how fantastic the architectural detail is in my current deco-era apartment; this studio on Riverside was from the “plaster box” school of design, lacking the charms (other than said fireplace) that are special to many NYC apartments, like moldings or old subway tiles. But would I want to live on Riverside without a river view? The maintenance is low, and the light radiant. I actually had such a good gut feeling about the place that, after the open house and once in the elevator, I told a hesitant-looking potential buyer that she should pounce. Interested?
