Our hunt this week surfaced a handful of particularlyspacious one-bedrooms, including one measuring almost 1,000 square feet in Kensington (that also has a really lovely foyer with three built-in bookshelves). And if you’ve ever fantasized about living in a solarium or greenhouse, this unusual Gramercy Park apartment (with a bedroom almost entirely covered in windows) might be a good option.
