327-East-3rd-Street HDFC apartments aren't always easy to find, but well worth the hunt. (327 East 3rd Street via Compass)
For many New Yorkers, an apartment on Fifth Avenue, Madison Avenue, or Central Park is thought to be reserved for only the city's wealthiest. However, HDFC co-ops all over New York have emerged as a beacon of hope for low- and middle-income buyers. These apartments are not necessarily easy to find, but well worth the search for the chance to live in a dream neighborhood at a price to match. We've offered some prime examples below, and don't forget to check our map at the bottom.

What is an HDFC Co-op?

HDFC units were created several decades ago as a way for tenants in poorly managed buildings to take control of the property and form cooperatives. The city sold these apartments to residents for a mere $250 a piece. Obviously they no longer trade for that price, but they do often sell for far less than what a comparable market rate unit in the same neighborhood would.
