Some say the COVID-19 pandemic and the economic fallout of its containment efforts may have led to some people re-thinking city living, but one might not know it to look at New York prices: According to CityRealty listings, the median price of a Manhattan condo is $2.49 million, or $1,837 per square foot.

However, tax abatements have a way of taking some of the sting out of sticker shock. The 421-a tax exemption program, which lasted from 1971 to 2016, is perhaps the most commonly known. It was established to encourage the development of underutilized property, and the tax breaks were passed on to buyers of units within the buildings. However, buyers are also advised to keep an eye out for J-51 and 421-gtax abatements.

The following Manhattan listings are situated in highly coveted neighborhoods, priced at levels more of us can contemplate, and come with tax abatements among other amenities.
