Crown Towers is sort of an honorary member of the Under $500K Club, because the units in this Art Deco building from 1926 never stay under the $500K mark long. Plus, it's a co-op and that makes buying in more complicated, to say the least. Listed in June for $549K and freshly chopped to $499K, this 1-bed, 1-bath 770-square-foot unit caught our eye with its genteel rounded doorways and wide beams. Plus, we're suckers for fireplaces, even the decorative kind. The brokerbabble promises a kitchen that's updated—a fancy statement that conveniently makes no guarnatees about size (SMALL). Hard to tell if that bright, thoroughly Astroturfed deck is private or shared, which affects how tolerable the kitchen is. HOA comes in at $445/month. Previous listings in the building have mentioned a no-pet policy, but we didn't see a mention here.
