The Power is Now

Homes for Sale in Manhattan and on Staten Island – The New York Times

Manhattan | 11 Fifth Avenue, No. 15G

A one-bedroom, one-bath, 1,000-square-foot postwar apartment with a combined living and dining room that has a door to an awning-lined terrace, a windowed galley kitchen with soapstone counters, a bedroom with a Murphy bed, a home office with not-quite-to-the-ceiling walls, a bathroom with a stall shower, a dressing area with a second sink, and a closet converted to a stereo area, on the 15th floor of the 20-story Brevoort, a doorman building with a basement laundry room and gym. Jeanne Byers, Coldwell Banker Warburg, 917-744-7494, George Case, 773-983-0513;


Maintenance: $2,925 a month
Special assessment: $580 a month through June 2024


The apartment, on the building’s southwest corner, offers views of Washington Square Park’s arch.


The Murphy bed, if it’s there to save space, seems unnecessary. A vanity for the sink in the bathroom could provide needed storage and counter space.

Manhattan | 20 Pine Street, No. 1416

A 1,000-square-foot studio apartment with an open floor plan, a walled-off sleeping alcove, a bathroom with separate tub and shower, a combined washer and dryer, 10-foot beamed ceilings, dark-stained hardwood floors, and northern exposure, on the 14th floor of a 38-story doorman building converted in 2008 with an indoor pool, gym and roof deck. AnneMarie Tamis-Nasello, The Agency, 917-292-0010;


Common charges: $1,273 a month
Taxes: $1,340 a month


The sleeping area features a walk-in closet. The main living space can easily fit a dining table.


Like many converted office buildings, the layout is a bit awkward: There aren’t many windows, and they’re all on one wall.

Staten Island | 90 Bay Street Landing, No. 9C

A three-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bath, 2,200-square-foot apartment with a combined living and dining room that has beamed ceilings, stone accent walls and an electric fireplace; an open kitchen with quartzite counters and a breakfast bar; a primary suite with a windowed bathroom; two bedrooms with Murphy beds; and a dedicated parking space, on the top floor of the nine-story Accolade, a 2015 doorman elevator building with a gym. Daniel Bochicchio, Douglas Elliman, 917-577-1425;


Common charges: $2,000 a month
Taxes: $564 a month


The unit feels like more than an apartment thanks to its laundry room, two outdoor spaces and en suite baths in every bedroom. A similar condo across the bay in Manhattan’s Financial District could cost twice as much. The Accolade is five-minute walk from St. George’s ferry terminal.


Only one bathroom has a window. The prized view from the building, of New York Bay and the Verrazzano-Narrows Bridge, can be admired only from the smaller of the two terraces.
