High floor north, south and east-facing five room 2 bedroom D line with over-sized windows and unobstructed open city views. This pin-drop quiet prewar home has a 12' windowed kitchen, full-size washer/dryer, high-beamed ceilings, crown/base molding and brilliant light streaming in throughout the day.

Cosmetically, this full-bodied home is in excellent condition. Walls and high-beamed ceilings have been recently painted and prewar details restored. In addition, the hardwood oak flooring is completely
... refinished throughout.

Beautifully designed in 1930, this financially sound Cooperative is nestled in a neighborhood overflowing with boutiques, gourmet specialty shops, fine restaurants and cultural institutions. It is situated midway between the East River Promenade and Central Park plus conveniently close to the 2nd Ave and #6 subway stops and the crosstown M79 bus.

New owners will benefit from many capital improvements completed and paid for in recent years. Amenities include a live-in building manager, bicycle plus private storage, a meticulously kept laundry facility and a delightful landscaped roof garden (see pics), one of my favorites in all of Manhattan! Pied-a-terres and pets are permitted with Board approval. There is a 2% “Flip Tax.”
