40 Great Jones Street #3 via Compass 40 Great Jones Street #3 via Compass
For some singles and young couples, a studio is too small but a home with many bedrooms would be, well, too many. Fortunately, New York real estate is rich in middle ground: one-bedroom apartments with an extra nook. These rooms were possibly built as a home office or dining area, but they can be whatever the owner needs: a nursery, a guest room, a second bedroom, a library, a craft space, an expanded wardrobe...The possibilities are limited only by the buyer's imagination.
