Buyers growing weary of cookie-cutter condo options might want to turn their attention to this Gramercy co-op, with its hardwood floors, 11-foot ceilings, large windows, and rounded, exposed brick walls that set it apart from the rest of the market. 

The layout also gives you more defined, separate spaces than a typical studio, with a galley kitchen and windowed sleeping alcove set apart from the main living area:

The listing and the floor plan also note that there's extra storage space above the bathroom, but none of it's pictured, so you'll have to investigate in person:

The maintenance charges here are high—to the tune of $1,204/month—but to make up for it, the building allows subletting after one year, cats and dogs, guarantors, co-purchasing, and pied-a-terres. There are also enticing building-wide amenities including a bike room, cold storage, basement storage, and a roof deck.

It doesn't come with keys to the park, but this still isn't a bad option for landing an address in one of Manhattan's most sought-after neighborhoods.
