By Linecity, December 27, 2021

According to New York City Records, the median price for an apartment in Manhattan in the month of November was $1,050,000. The price represents a slight decrease from last year’s median price of $1,060,000. The number of sales increased from 651 to 1,109, representing a year-over-year increase of 70%.

What exactly does $1,050,000  get you in Manhattan? Let’s take a look.

Apartment 4-C at 18 West 70th Street is a 2-bedroom, 2 bath co-op located in the heart of Lincoln Square, just steps from Central Park. This sponsor apartment was first listed for $1,100,000 and sold for $1,050,000.

The renovated residence offers a flowing layout, which welcomes you with a formal foyer and leads you through the home’s common areas with grace.  Every bit of space is optimized, creating a home that feels larger than it actually is.  

The open kitchen is the first room you pass;  it’s exquisite.  Marble walls and counters, integrated appliances, white base cabinets and floating upper shelves create a timeless appearance.  A window over the sink offers a ray of light.

Turn the next corner and there is a stunning built in dinette table.  A set of wall sconces adorn the wall. A third pivot and you enter the living room.  While it’s not particularly large, it has its charm.  Beamed ceilings, rich moldings and solid rift oak flooring – which show throughout the residence – help create a beautiful home.

The marble bath, like the rest of the apartment, maximizes the use of space.  It features a stunning double vanity, a deep soaking tub and a large mirrored medicine cabinet.  A window adds natural light.

18 West 70th Street is located between Central Park West and Columbus Avenue.  The building opened as a rental property in 1925 and was converted to co-operative ownership in 1984. It is a modest mid-block building, rising 9 floors while offering 59 apartments.  There is a landscaped courtyard for residents. The low monthly maintenance fees of $1,448 is worth a mention.  

The property was represented by Dan Fishman and Andrew Hatcher of Corcoran. At this time there are no other availabilities in the building.  To  look at past sales, please visit
