The bathroom has two doors — one that opens into the bedroom and the other into a hall. The bedroom enjoys southern exposure. The fireplace works.
The kitchen is tight and seems maxed out in terms of storage possibilities. The bedroom doesn’t have any closets, though the apartment has three.

The yard, lined with stone and edged with fencing, is larger than what some townhouses have. The brick-faced condo blends in to its neighborhood, unlike some developments. The monthly fees are low.
The interiors seem dim. Yard access requires going through a bedroom. The nearest subway stop, on Smith Street, is about six blocks away.
Manhattan | 3 Great Jones Street, No. 4
A two-bedroom, one-bath, 1,300-square-foot apartment with a corner living room that has hardwood floors; a windowed kitchen with a wine refrigerator and dishwasher; a windowless home office with French doors, wallpapered walls and built-in bookshelves; a windowed bath with a penny-tile floor; and a washer and dryer, on the fourth floor of a five-story, non-doorman walk-up building from 1843. Jeremy V. Stein, Sotheby’s International Realty, 917-854-4411; sothebysrealty.com
$2,015 a month
The apartment has something of a rarity for New York City: a true eat-in kitchen. Because of an alley next door, the home has windows not just in the front and back, but also along a side wall.
Three flights of stairs may be too many for some. The building is technically reserved for working artists, but the decades-old program that imposes the stipulations is not always enforced.
Given the fast pace of the current market, some properties may no longer be available at the time of publication.
