Top School Draw

The young couple, who were expecting with their first child, bought this 1,375-square foot apartment, with two large bedrooms and two full baths on a high floor, because it is zoned into Manhattan New School P.S. 290.The noteworthy school, which is exempt from the city's mandatory curriculum and specializes in writing, is a boon to the neighboring real estate market, said Fred Taubner, an agent at Bellmarc, who represented the buyers.

The apartment, listed by Douglas Elliman agent Jacky Teplitzky, is on the corner of First Avenue and has exposures to the south, east, and north, and a large dining room that could be converted into a third bedroom.

The listing was on the market for three months because the sellers, an elderly couple moving to a gated community in Westchester to be near their grandchildren, needed a delayed closing while their home was being built.

"We had to find the right buyer who didn't need the regular 90-day closing and could wait for the house to be finished," Ms. Teplitzky said.
