Christopher Mantione, 646-522-3531, Corcoran,
COMMON CHARGES $425 a month, with a $99 monthly assessment through October 2022 to pay for a sprinkler system; TAXES $469 a month
PROS The private roof has more than 300 square feet, with built-in furniture and a refrigerator, as well as a storage space for cushions. The apartment has a vented washer and dryer, a range and oven from Bertazzoni, and a Bosch dishwasher. Ample storage includes a closet on every level and off both bedrooms. A 100-square-foot storage unit in the basement is included.
CONS The windows in the second bedroom are very high; they let in light but do not offer any views. The building has no amenities. Buyers must be comfortable climbing stairs: Not only is the apartment’s layout very vertical, it’s also up a flight of stairs from the street.
