A: Check out what $150,000 buys you in Manhattan: 229 West 144th Street in West Harlem where the description is long enough to describe a 3,000 sq. ft. penthouse asking $5M!

Brand New to the market with the first showing at Saturday's Open House, this certainly is priced low enough to gather a significant crowd! This is 1 of 2 apartments that this Corcoran team are selling in the same building; Apt. 46 is asking $175K and has a slightly bigger floorplan.

According to the listing:

Nestled between two of Harlem's most prestigious neighborhoods...Sugar Hill and Historic Hamilton Heights you will simply not find more value for your dollar anywhere on the Island of Manhattan. Minutes away from many area attractions including Bradhurst Park where you can cool off in the outdoor pool open from July 4-Labor Day, St. Nicholas Park, Aaron Davis Hall at City College, The Alvin Ailey Dance Academy, and so much more! Supermarket shopping will be a breeze at the all new Pathmark Supermarket located at 145th Street and 8th Avenue.
