This is What $1 Million buys you in NYC | Luxury Apartment Tour


this is what 1 Million Dollars buys you in New
York City one of the most frequent questions I get asked in this series is
to showcase more realistic and affordable luxury places in the city in
this series we have toured some of the most expensive real estate in the United
States I’m talking properties that are out of reach for even the 1% in this
video sponsored by Best Buy I’m going to take you on a tour of what you can buy
for $1,000,000 in New York City the average price for a home in America is
just around $200,000 while here in Manhattan the median price for a
one-bedroom apartment recently reached near 1 million dollars so while this is
expensive for the majority of the country here in Manhattan
1 million dollars is this close to realistic as you can get for buying an
apartment we’re walking up to the apartment now which is located on the
border of Murray Hill and Midtown this neighborhood is definitely one of the
more affordable in New York City there’s tons of families that live here it’s
relatively quiet but on the other hand there’s tons of bars and restaurants
right nearby and a big shout-out to Best Buy who hook this apartment up with ring
security products which are comprised of the alarm system doorbell and camera
they work together to monitor your home and keep it safe while you’re out there
exploring the world making it a great holiday gift for the traveler on your
shopping list this is the front door entranceway and were actually to take
the stairs up to the apartment because this building does not have an elevator
this apartment was actually built in the 1920s and most apartments from this air
do not have elevators and luckily for me today this apartment is on the top floor
I actually can go in it and another thing this apartment does not have is a
doorman and that’s something you won’t typically get with a more affordable
apartment but with the ring doorbell it allows you to see who’s at your door
from anywhere using your smart phone and you can also talk to the person at the
door via the app just like we did it’s perfect for guests and especially
package deliveries which can be a real pain especially if you do not have a
doorman now entering the apartments we have a large open floor plan
with 11 foot tall ceilings and that classic New York City exposed red brick
like I said earlier this building is an older building you definitely get that
New York City Heritage feel when you walk in this room for added security the
ring also has sensors on doors and windows to alert you when they’re opened
up and for a small monthly fee you can even have professional monitoring help
right off of the entryway we have the kitchen and now this is a pretty great
sized kitchen for a New York City apartment it’s also important to note
that this kitchen was recently gut renovated and it has all brand-new
stainless steel appliances especially in this price range renovations are one way
to definitely increase the value of your apartment if you’re looking to sell it
in the near future and I have to say one of the most unique things about this
kitchen is having a dishwasher built-in if you live in the city and you live in
an older building you know having a dishwasher that is that’s considered
luxury in New York City moving on from the kitchen we’re gonna head over to the
living room and dining room which takes up the majority of the space on the
first floor as you can see this apartment is one giant open floor plan
but it’s segmented out by the furniture to carve out different areas in such a
larger room here we have the traditional living room layout with this large
leather couch up against the wall coffee table right in front and the
couch face is one of the more unique features of this apartment a working
wood burning fireplace with these older buildings you might have to do a little
bit more work as far as renovations go but you can’t replace that classic New
York charm this is authentic New York City living and then of course above the
fireplace we have a large TV perfect for entertaining your guests the total
square footage on this first floor is just about 500 square feet as you know
living in the city every square foot counts and this apartment does a
fantastic job utilizing the space for many different areas another example of
saving space in this apartment we have these custom cabinets here against the
wall right off of these cabinets we have the bathroom this bathroom is still
under renovation recently there was a glass shower put in a brand new tiling
we also have a washer and dryer built into the bathroom most apartments you
have to either go downstairs to a basement to do your wash or send it out
somewhere in the city having your laundry right here in your
home it’s pretty awesome speaking from an architectural standpoint having a
spiral staircase in your apartment is a very space efficient way to get to the
second floor they take up less space in a traditional staircase and I think they
look pretty cool and the staircase goes up to the second floor master bedroom
the master bedroom is just about 300 square feet and that’s pretty large for
any apartment in the city when you do buy an apartment in this budget range
it’s very rare to have two stories in your apartment again speaking of space
the master bedroom has this custom closet with these two very large sliding
barn doors I think it’s a nice touch and then over here in the corner we actually
have a space-saving treadmill which folds up when it’s not in use
having outdoor space in New York no matter what type of apartment you are
living in is definitely a luxury especially if you have a view like this
one behind me it definitely adds a certain ambiance you can come out here
at night have dinner with friends it is a decent sized outdoor space it’s just
about 150 square feet most people in the city would be thrilled to have any
outdoor space at all but check this out this apartment has not Juana but two
rooftop decks to have a one-bedroom apartment especially at this price and
have two outdoor spaces that’s kind of unheard of in New York City up on this
second rooftop deck we have an additional 300 square feet of outdoor
space everything that we’ve shown you for 1 million dollars it’s pretty rare
find this is definitely a gem in the city with all this extra rooftop space
we also have the ring hammer out here which is a great way to keep an eye on
guests his furniture while he’s in the living room or elsewhere it livestreams
video to his phone 24/7 with all this rooftop space there’s more than one way
to access this apartment the ring security system it really ties
everything together with the doorbell the camera to make a great gift and it’s
available at Best Buy it is the perfect holiday gift for the traveler on your
list so you can monitor your home while you’re out there exploring the world

    I'll take 1/100000th please

  3. hhkf ghkl says:

    This is the most disgousting ad i have ever seen

  4. Duke Wellington says:

    This is a 5 minute ad for Ring… And the ham-fisted editing makes this so cringe.

  5. Brendan Parker says:

    Imagine wanting to live in New York

  6. Muhammad Saeed says:

    is this video an apartment ad or a ring security ad? i am confused

  7. Juliano Bondan says:

    Erik
    Up until now the only apartment that made me feel good was that on Noho, worth 6kk.

  8. borderlord says:

    I bet the Post man enjoys delivering to that apartment!😳

  9. El_Radwano says:

    After 20th time i heard ring product in 3 minutes i just stop watching. If i want to look at ring ad i will go on their website

  10. Michel Fortier says:

    Can you throw in Best Buy any more into this video than what you did….I doubt it. You lost me for good.

  11. The Mink Man says:

    I’m just glad no self respecting robber would have YouTube, other wise they would locate my security camera and alarm placement. It’s a ring system.. did I mention that?

  12. QUAG says:

    New York not only once

  13. Daulen Bayaman says:

    For how much this appartment could be rented?

  14. something something something says:

    When you consider the outdoor space, room layout, location and such. It's an amazing appartement. I could definitely see myself living there if it was redecorated.

  15. Rishi Paul says:

    I can't honestly say if someone else would pay a million for that, but I would be surprised, especially in this market. It has some work put into it, and the seller may list it initially at $1M, but I think it sits on the market for months unless the owner is willing to drop that price. I don't think that kitchen is especially large (mini appliances, etc.), but it's open and good enough for a 1BR (not at that price, though). The outdoor spaces are nice, as are the higher ceilings, but being on the top/high floor of a walk-up negates a lot of that. The spiral staircase to the bedroom is an interesting touch, but not everyone wants stairs or a bedroom without an actual door for privacy. Given that it's not in an expensive area, that price feels too high, unless you find that right buyer who absolutely loves the outdoor areas. Overall, there are plenty of 1BR in Manhattan right now which are listed much lower ($550k-$800k) and would make a much better choice for an entry into the NYC market. Granted, this is a "million dollar listing" video, but neither the building nor the apartment itself have that expensive or luxurious vibe to justify that (all in my opinion, of course).

  16. Luís Filipe says:

    So basically luxury apartment in New York means having a ring security thing, located in the center and… that's it. Pretty underwhelming for one million lol.

  17. Herr NoName says:

    Naaaa……i could get a bigger and better one with 1 Mio

  18. Alina Beishn says:

    Hello, my name is Alina, I am from Kyrgyzstan and my father is ill with cancer, we don’t have enough money for treatment, it’s silly to write here and ask for help, but I have no choice but to hope for good people. Help me please. My number: +996505272777 Instagram: alina97beishn

  19. Jess Xo says:

    apartment is 1 millions dollars
    Him: one of the best things about this apartment is the built in DISHWASHER

  20. Luis Felipe says:

    1 million to live on the top floor with no elevators? Yeah, if I had that money it would be a solid pass.

  21. Nurse Nett says:

    This would be worth about 100,000 in Ohio

  22. Amy Loc says:

    No thanks.

  23. Hieu Cao says:

    Actually this apartment I think pretty worth $1M

  24. chosen elite76 says:

  25. Легенды Рока says:

    5:54 whats this?sofa?if it rains?

  26. Diego Gallardo says:

    this video gave me a littles panic attack, it feels claustrophobic. Even the arrangement of the outside buildings creates a virtual enclosure

  27. Libby Ral says:

    Pick you drinking game – take a shot when all the shortcomings and bonuses in the apartment are qualified as being 'an apartment in New York City' or every time Ring is mentioned.

  28. Jason Tan says:

    i was more interested in the ring security than the house.

  29. Goddess Tata says:

    Funny because is it me or this apartment just not worth 1 million dollars . I have witnessed wayyyyyyyyyy better luxury looking apartment that are cheaper than this .

  30. 02929203 222222242 says:

    would buy 10/10 if i had something to do in new york and at least 15m

  31. ty cromwell says:

    Nice . Two out door spaces but nyc gets cold. Very cold. Only half the year will one be able to access the space comfortably….

  32. ZAWENA EFIA says:

    1 Million Dollars for an apartment on the top floor/26th floor that DOES NOT HAVE A LIFT/ELEVATOR. ISSA no from me.

  33. Thomas Embry says:

    imagine being that big of a dumbass to spend 1mil on a tiny apartment

  34. Shoaib Changezi says:

    I am from Balochistan which is the most underdeveloped province of one of the most underdeveloped country, Pakistan. Yet, on an average, an apartment/house costs you around $100,000.

  35. Dan Norseman says:

    You call $1,000,000 realistic?

  36. yj007 says:

    I’m paying 850 Bucks for my apartment en NJ and guess what?? Yes I’m living in luxury with my elevator!! LOL

  41. Hoff nicht says:

    The interior designer should get fired

  42. CMack Scott says:

    Some people are in love with the New York City lifestyle. That would not be me.

  43. nyah salvatore says:

    Who would pay 1m for an apartment that you have to climb 26 flights of stairs for???

  44. jeanluc305 says:

    New York prices are just ridiculous just like any other major city in the western world. People have to stop over valuing cities that much and prices would drop like a dead bird.

  45. Ramin Anushir says:

    Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy Ring best buy

  46. Val Colmer says:

    You'd have to be some kind of stupid

  47. colorblindkid720 says:

    Those Ring cameras will be a great way to catch a quick clip of Spider-Man

  48. Mikias Repsold says:

    A million dollar gets you a life time supply of ring service lol

  49. Treece says:

    1 million ? wouldnt even live there if you paid me with that stairs tho !

  50. mrparts says:

    I did not hear a mention about the monthly HOA/maintenance fees for this place…. I am guessing it’s at least $1,200 a month or higher….

  51. Life of Liam says:

    How the fuck did they get the refrigerator and sofa up them stairs…

  52. Landon says:

    This video just reaffirmed the fact that I would hate living in New York.

  53. metopcop says:

    No Doorman, no elevator, no thanks!

  54. David Smith says:

    This is just one long f*cking ad for RING

  55. Mike says:

    Imagine coming home hammered and climbing up those steps. Recipe for disaster

  56. Isube says:

    A city controlled by a buncha fuckin liberals, what a surprise.

  57. Alexa Funcia says:

    This is why I only visit New York.

  58. Luisa Vence says:

    The apartment is cute but if you move here, imagine getting all your furniture up there, so much work.

  59. Camille Giraud says:

    C'mon, that's crap.

  60. Fmlopez 14 says:

    Rather buy a 800,000$ mansion in ohio

  61. VOID says:

    not even half way through the video and he mentioned the ring doorbell 4 times already

  62. Benjamin Anerman says:

    That would be an amazing apartment if there was a elevator

  63. MEXTEKA says:

    250k I can get a mansion in cabo san Lucas near the beach with employees included 😂 your just paying for the brand of new York city not worth it.

  64. Harry Sachs says:

    For $1M, you get a ring system and it comes with an apartment as a plus.

  65. Marco Colianni says:

    This video is just a Ring ad. Im cool with ads, but man this is too much…

  66. Sukh Singh says:

    How can I get more information on 'ring'? I don't think it was clear in the video

  67. Bruce Hancock says:

    Erik you really disappointed me by reviewing this trash apartment, Only a corporate drug dealer will purchase this apartment for his hide out, before those fat useless cops will climb those stairs, all crack would have gone down the toilet.

  68. LampEye says:

    So basically u gotta walk down that spiral staircases at midnight if u wanna take a piss…. sorry I’m out

  69. zabir gucci says:

    WTF From europe

  70. First Name says:

    Ugh this video is cringe. "Affordable" 1 million dollars

  71. Shivam Kaushik says:

    idk about the price but i kinda like the apartment.. it has the nyc feel to it

  72. Unni Krishnan says:

    Really 1 M whaaaat?

  73. Chris Chua says:

    Lol for 1 million dollars you could get a hollywood style mansion in the Philippines

  74. sango_wango says:

    The closet barn doors look nice, but the one side seems like it would open less than 1 foot. What's the point of having a huge doorway if the door doesn't even open 25% of the width? Seems dumb to me.

  75. Flo Moose says:

    Now, I always thought I'd like living in NYC, but honestly, I'd be the guy who has his own front yard, rather than walking up 5 floors to my apartment door, only to find myself in a 40sqm room, which makes up half of the apartment…

  76. GriffinsandThecrew says:

    It's nice considering the shitholes you get for a million in NYC.

  77. Alejandro Baquero says:

    More realistic budgets!!

  78. Georgie says:

    A dishwasher is a luxury in NYC? I'll stay in Wisconsin then

  79. Alexandra Golightly says:

    I love this house

  80. Kent Smith says:

    Dude's hot…next question?

  81. hh30ar84 says:

    Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring Ring…

  82. J M says:

    Lame. Just post an ad.

  83. jen s says:

    Park ave is affordable ? Lol

  84. Janusha says:

    The average price for a home in America is 200 000 dollars… And for that you get a house where you can punch your fist clean through the walls if you slip and fall on the stairs. Its like american cars. It looks like the real thing from a distance, but is cheaply built and not made to last.

  85. Najadea Jay says:

    I would just commute from jersey or philly. That does not look like a million dollar apartment at all. At least in jersey or philly you can either buy a huge house or I know people who live in condos that are 400k that have doorman and elevators and their place is way bigger. I would love to visit ny but to live it’s a no for me

  86. Gadget Kid says:

    Queens is affordable in NYC

  87. Scarlett Lenoir says:

    Who spent 1mil for a underwhelming basic apartment. And no elevator ? Come on smh

  88. Diamond Diminique says:

    No anks

  89. Maxx Masson says:

    for the money definitely not worth it ,a wise investor can do a lot with 1 million and have money left over

  90. mindciller says:

    That place is tiny. Miniature fridge and dishwasher. Formal part of the living room. Man people are really starting to live like rats. I see no ambiance in that outdoor space which is literally a view of buildings. I can't do that city

  91. vasDcrak Gaming says:

    Eric: Its relatively quiet
    BEEEEEP BEEEEEEP BEEEEEEEEP

  92. Merlene Taylor says:

    All those stairs for $1M? As if.

  93. Rebeka Bernetic says:

    Trust me. The stairs alone will keep any robber away from that place.

  94. RDRND says:

    Am I the only one that noticed that the video and production quality is trash and that the video feels rushed. Is it because they are doing a "poor" man's apartment 😂

  95. issecret1 says:

    200 000 dollars for a house somewhere else? That is not that different from a big city in my country and people don't typically make half your minimum wage

  96. AYOUB says:

    Thatw trash mate 😂😂😂😂 is so bad place for living

  97. vnc_t says:

    This comment section describes this Apartment 1 Million times better than he does

  98. Peio Lopez de Robles says:

    In the city where I live that apartment would be of 200,000 $

  99. Book Worm says:

    That's it

  100. Christian Loyd says:

    Hi, Eric. Why don'' you 'ry 'o use the le''er "T" properly? You are talking about an aparTmenT in New York CiTy; not an apar'men' in New York Ci'y. You're not the only person that does it, but it still sounds stupid.
