February 7, 2019 9:00 am

They say a million bucks ain’t what it used to be.

Which is patently, obviously, overwhelmingly true.

But there’s still some value to be had in the NYC real-estate market, as evidenced by these six sub-$1M dwellings we’d be chuffed to call home.

From a house with seven bedrooms to a bachelor pad with a basketball court, these are homes worth investing in.

And living in, in the meantime.
