This Murray Hill studio/loft co‐op has a unique sleeping area that will come as a pleasant surprise to fans of overnight train travel: it's a sleep nook tucked above the walk‐in closets. There's not a straight‐on shot of this feature, but we can tell that one has to ascend a wooden ladder to get to bed and that headroom once inside does not favor much animated tossing and turning. There is enough
room up there to fit a full‐size mattress though. The rest of the newly renovated studio looks beautiful, with a functioning wood burning fireplace and sound‐proofed hardwood floors. With amenities like a finished roof deck, laundry, and bike room for monthly maintenance of only $406 a month, this apartment just off Fifth Avenue seems like a relative bargain. It's currently renting for $2,900 a month.
