Things we love about this property crush:

This is your chance to live in Manhattan’s most classic neighborhood: The Upper East Side. Or more specifically, Carnegie Hill. If you’re the Charlotte of your group or eschew hipster for chic—this tree-lined block will be your ideal ‘hood.

The “classic five” (how much do you love that term?) is in a gorgeous Art Deco building on a block that’s not too busy, but steps from everything you could want or need. (Hello, Sfoglia!) The apartment is on a coveted corner with a split two-bedroom layout that offers plenty of space for a king-sized bed in the master and a bonus dressing area in the second bedroom. The two bathrooms might be a tad small, but the huge closets make up for it. And the apartment comes with a washer and dryer.

But the best part is the living room, which you step into from the big-for-Manhattan foyer. Imagine being able to stay, “step into my sunken living room” when living in NYC. It’s flooded with light and offers enough space for a dining room table.

We love the current owner’s french bohemian style, but the pre-war apartment is so versatile that it will fit even the most contemporary of tastes.

The Carnegie Hill location is prime—you’ll be a hop and a skip from Central Park, the 92nd Street Y, and loads of great restaurants and shopping. The building allows pets and has a full-time doorman.
