Brooklyn | 195 Classon Avenue, No. 4A
A two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,186-square-foot apartment with a combined living and dining room that has a home-office alcove, an open kitchen with a breakfast bar and quartz counters, a primary suite with a balcony, and a washer and dryer, on the fourth floor of a five-story, non-doorman elevator building from 2008. Bruce Henderson, Corcoran Group, 646-287-1765; corcoran.com
Common charges: $425 a month
Taxes: $49 a month (abated through December 2033)
The elevator conveniently opens right into the apartment, and access is controlled by keys for security purposes.
The building’s facade, a mishmash of brick and colored-glass elements, seems an odd fit with its block.
Manhattan | 10 Park Avenue, No. 11J
Murray Hill Co-op
A one-bedroom, one-bath, 650-square-foot prewar apartment with a combined living and dining room that has a beamed ceiling and a decorative fireplace, a windowed galley kitchen, a windowed bathroom, and casement windows, in an elevator building with a part-time superintendent, a doorman and a roof deck.

This apartment, a pleasant stroll from Grand Central Terminal, can be used as a pied-à-terre.
The proportions of the rooms can seem off: The foyer is ample, but the kitchen is cramped. Some might find the lack of a dishwasher to be a turnoff.

Stylish, cozy and lined with storage areas, the apartment also feels one-of-a-kind, courtesy of a quirky layout.
One of the rooms that has a bed is not a legal bedroom, since it lacks outside windows. But interior clerestory-style windows do allow some natural light.
