MetroApril 21, 2016

New York City renters and buyers are used to compromises - and that almost always means space. For singles — and even couples — a studio is the perfect option for those looking to move into their dream neighborhood. But small living doesn’t need to cramp your style as these four studios prove.


150 Myrtle Avenue


This Brooklyn studio promises a “unique open layout allowing for maximum comfort.” That layout includes three closets, a washer/dryer, and 11-foot-7-inch by 9-foot-2-inch open kitchen area that leads to a 12-foot-7-inch by 15-foot-3-inch living / sleeping area. The apartment, located in the Downtown Brooklyn / Fort Greene area and listed for $530,000, is all about the views - with its floor-to-ceiling windows that show the Manhattan skyline. The building is also “green” with a fitness center, 50-foot heated indoor pool, and a landscaped multi-level roof garden.
