Co-op pick of the week

Always wanted to live on Park Avenue? This co-op could be your chance

If you've been following the real estate market reports and news closely, you've probably read how co-ops—even those in the toniest places like Park Avenue on the Upper East Side—are seeing price adjustments. That could explain why this two-bedroom, two-bath in a white-glove co-op building on Park Avenue and 87th Street is asking $1.249 million, about $600,000 less than the area median.

There's also the fact that it's in estate condition. That said, the apartment exudes prewar charm with the help of herringbone floors in the master bedroom, crown moldings, and ceilings that reach up to nine-and-a-half feet. That's what you'd call "good bones."

Sure, there are a lot of mirrors in the dining area (shown above), but anyone who's not a fan of that particular design choice can rather easily replace them. (We actually kind of like them, and they certainly expand the space.)

The kitchen—which isn't pictured, so we'd assume could use an update, too—has a washer and dryer.

The 1929 building, that happens to be a short walk from Central Park, allows pied-a-terres, pets and financing up to 50 percent.
