The 8’7″ beamed ceilings inside this studio give the apartment an open feel and the windows offer city views and ample sunlight. With 24 hour security, a fully equipped gym, on-site laundry and access to two private green areas, this tiny home comes with amenities any New Yorker would covet.

Another feature that lets in plenty of light and ventilation is that both the eat-in kitchen and the bathroom have windows. The closet/dressing area multiplies the daylight let in with a mirrored wall that makes the space feel a tad bit larger.

And since the beauty of a city apartment is that you don’t spend much time there anyway, this small studio also boasts close access to the F, J, M and Z trains. The apartment is also walking distance (one block to be exact) to the East River Park, ball fields and tennis courts.

    The wall between the kitchen and living room shouldn't be load bearing, at least according to the floor plan. There may be duct work to move but not a huge deal. Great apartment with good use of a small space. I'd live there without issue.

    This is actually big for a Manhattan studio apartment! Even though the minimum size for many residential zones is 450 sq. ft. many people live in subdivided studios 300 sq. ft. or smaller. There was a recent housing competition in 2012 to design a 250-300 sq. ft. apartment for single people living alone.
