what does "a wreck in a great area"mean?

She now has a beach house on the North Fork of Long Island and wanted what she called “a hotel room” in the city, “a wreck in a great area.” Apartment 4E was certainly a wreck (and mirrored, to boot). When Ms. Horowitz saw it, she gasped and told the broker, “I think I’m good, but I’m not this good.”

    A trashy place in the city. The city is the "great area", and a "wreck" is a colloquial term for something really messy and broken-down.
