Top Five Condos For Sale In Manhattan
Just when you thought you couldn’t afford one, Agorafy finds you five.
Quick—name three words that best describe a typical condo in Manhattan. Chances are, you’ve come up with something like “luxury,” “high-end” and “so-expensive-that-I’d-have-to-sell-all-my-vital-organs-to-ever-afford-a-downpayment.”
We thought so, too: Who can possibly afford to buy a NYC condo these days?
Well, as it turns out, one can still find plenty of reasonably-priced condos for sale in Manhattan—you know, the real ones, with mahogany floors, oversized windows and in-building gyms.

So if you’ve ever dreamed of owning a condo (and feel that Brooklyn is overrated) here is Agorafy’s list of our top five Manhattan condos for sale. Enjoy those large windows!
Neighborhood: Financial District
Size: 580 sq.ft.
If you think that Financial District is not really the area to hang out and have fun during the weekends, then think again. In fact, the Financial District is the fastest growing residential neighborhood in Manhattan. It’s got new restaurants, bars and other cool stuff normally associated with Williamsburg. No bearded individuals have been spotted so far, but who knows?
The condo itself is quite gorgeous and, even more importantly, affordable: $1,164 per square foot as opposed to the median condo price in the area—$1,359 per square foot.
Neighborhood: East Harlem
Size: 500 sq.ft.
Technically, moving to East Harlem (and into this beautiful condo) makes you a gentrifier: As we reported recently, El Barrio is caught up in a blizzard of change. And in NYC, change implies “getting more expensive by the minute”.
But hey, the other way to look at it is that you are making a smart investment move. Real estate prices in East Harlem will be rapidly increasing, so snatch this condo while you still can.
It currently asks $1,040 per square foot, and the median price in the area is $1,615—a pretty sweet deal, if you ask us.
Neighborhood: Greenwich Village East
Size: 813 sq.ft.
East Village is an awesome neighborhood—and a ridiculously expensive one. Which is why we at Agorafy got so excited when we found this listing: The duplex at 631 E9th only costs $1,106 per square foot whereas the median asking price in the area is $1,961 per square foot.
Shut up and take our money!
Neighborhood: Battery Park City
Size: 625 sq.ft.
What’s not great about this condo? First, it’s next to the Hudson River Park esplanade—and although we do realize that leisurely strolls are the last thing on your mind right now, you’ll thank us in the summer.
What’s more, the place has just been renovated—and is still cheaper than an average condo in Battery Park. The asking price is $1,008 per square foot—as opposed to the median price of $1,427 per square foot.
Neighborhood: Financial District
Size: 530 sq.ft.
Another condo in Financial District—we already agreed that this neighborhood is (almost) a new Williamsburg, remember? The place itself is a work of art—especially the kitchen. It’s so beautiful with all those top of the line appliances, you’ll wish you cooked.
The asking price—$1,217 per square foot—is cheaper than the average $1,359 per square foot. Enjoy.
