Seems Insane! This Private Island Is Cheaper Than Most NYC Apartments

Seems Insane! This Private Island Is Cheaper Than Most NYC Apartments Expand options

Here’s a story that’s sure to have you wishing you lived anywhere other than NYC:

A one-acre private island on Putnam Lake is only an hour and a half drive from the city, and at $899,000, it’s a real bargain by New York standards.

Here in the Big Apple, the average apartment goes for $1.4 million, and we guarantee you it’s a lot smaller than this 5,600-square-foot pre-war home. The estate has all the amenities of modern living like DSL and satellite television. Plus a guest house.

The only catch: Putnam Lake has a ban on motorized boats, so the only way to reach the property is by rowboat.

Still, what’s a morning row compared to an hour on the Q-train?
