Prior to late July it would've behooved buyers to act on the 1,350-sqaure-foot Brewster availability, formerly a piece of Charlie Chaplin's penthouse. That unit was priced at $249K and sold for $245K. Today's Under $300K Club addition is fit for the utilitarian solo buyer more inclined toward the basics of location and history. The first-floor studio is newly listed for just $83,430 w/ monthly dues of $238. Its spaces are bright and renovated with parquet floors, exposed brick, and a newer kitchen w/ stacked washer/dryer. Park and lake are right nearby but why not jog the catwalks come winter? Say Curbed put you up to it.
