The most popular listings on The New York Times’s Find a Home site in August included a very affordable apartment in Inwood and the very expensive former home of Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender who died in jail last year.
5. All the Way Uptown
$359,000 | 251 Seaman Avenue, No. 3D, Inwood
The asking price for this 795-square-foot, one-bedroom, one-bath co-op surely raised eyebrows and boosted the listing’s popularity. Inwood Hill Park’s 200 acres of greenery are nearby and the Art Deco building offers laundry and bike storage.
$1,295,000 | 130 West 86th Street, No. 16A, Upper West Side
This one-bedroom, one-bath penthouse with a large rooftop terrace is about a block from Central Park. There’s a muted yet playful color pallet on the walls and ceilings. The $2,669 monthly maintenance may give some buyers pause.

This 10-bedroom, 15-bath, 28,000-square-foot townhouse is the former home of Jeffrey Epstein, the convicted sex offender who died in jail in August 2019. Described as the largest private home in the city, the circa-1930s building has also served as a hospital and a school.
