The Classic Six Just-listed apartments that feature the classic six-room spread

The Classic Six

As much a part of NYC real estate tradition as Empire State Building views, the term "classic six" refers to a six-room apartment floor plan found in many of the city's pre-war buildings. It consists of a formal dining room, a living room, a kitchen, two bedrooms and a smaller bedroom–often created as a maid's room, perfect as a home office. Given the graciousness of pre-war architecture the rooms are usually generous in size. Below, a sampling of currently available listings.
