Karen Shenker of Corcoran sold the cheapest Manhattan pad this week, at the seller’s asking price of  $189,000 for a co-op at 100 West 141st Street in Central Harlem. The single-family, 765-foot-square space has 2 bedrooms and 1 bath. The pre-war building is situated near Lenox Avenue, within blocks of the No. 3 train and two playgrounds.

The second least expensive sale to hit city records this week was a studio condominium at 48 West 138th Street between Lenox and Fifth avenues that sold for $193,217, a hair over the $190,000 ask. The space was listed co-exclusively by Rubicon Property and Bohemian Realty Group, and Emi Manasse of Rubicon had the sale. Constructed in 1940 and converted into studio and one-bedroom condos by G4 Development Group in 2011, the residential building features a 24-hour “virtual” doorman and exposed brick interiors.

An LLC that appears to be managed by the law firm of Joseph DePaola purchased the next cheapest listing, an Upper East Side co-op at 300 East 71st Street in Lenox Hill, for $220,000 from New York City-based real estate firm Goldfein Properties. Units in the building feature terraces and roughly 800 to 1,000 square feet of space, with access to a 24-hour doorman, concierge, garage parking and a roof deck.

A Murray Hill studio co-op at 5 Tudor City Place also sold pretty cheap, for $250,000 to a buyer who appears to be senior architect Maria Tarczynska of MS3 Corp. The sale price was just below the $259,000 the studio was listed for by Ronald Webster and Zachary Gumpel of Tudor Realty. The 11-foot by nearly 18-foot unit features high-beamed ceilings, refinished original wood floors, views of the river and access to the building’s fitness center.The 26-floor building is owned by Windsor Associates.

Another co-op sold for the same price in the northernmost part of Manhattan, in a low-rise at 95 Park Terrace East between 218 and 219th streets in Inwood. Miguel Ceara of Rutenberg Realty had the listing. The 750-square-foot space was designed by the architect Albert Goldhammer in 1925. Other units in the pre-war building have sold anywhere from $121,000 to $380,000 for units on the top floor. — Angela Hunt
