Optional details about your question
This question is about this property: http://www.trulia.com/homes/New_York/New_York/sold/214365-41
it depends on where it is located and what type of property and amenities
We would need more information i.e. sale or rental, walk-up (what floor) or elevator, renovated kitchen/bath, location? There isnn't much room in a 500 square foot one bedroom to convert a living room unless you're willing to give up a living room. Robin
The square footage really varies. What you are talking about is a "Junior 4" or "convertible 2" in NYC real estate parlance. That would be an apt. with a bedroom and the ability to convert an alcove or part of a living room into another small bedroom. Most apartments with that layout are pre-war and square footage is generally not quoted on co-ops. There is good reason for that. The offering plan is the definitive document and for co-ops they quote shares in the corporation, not square footage.
Square footage can be deceiving even when it is available, as the layout and flow can make the identical square footage feel very different.
The best way to go about this is to work with an experienced, skilled agent who can find you what you are looking for, negotiate on your behalf, and take you through all the steps.

It sounds like what you are referring to is a Junior One. AKA an alcove studio. The alcove portion of the living room can be converted into a small bedroom. Junior 1's are usually 500+/- square feet.
A Junior 4 has a full bedroom and the dining alcove portion or L shaped living room can be converted to a second bedroom. Junior 4's are usually 700 +/- square feet.

Each market segment, building, block and neighborhood has it's own nuances.
