I saw this place recently and I just want to say that the listing does not mention how great the view is. It looks out into a beautiful courtyard but is high enough to clear most of the buildings so it gets a ton of light. Also the entrance to the building is so unique, you walk through an open air (covered) atrium before getting to the elevators. The floors need some work but the walls have a beautiful molding. It was nice to see that the previous owners did not get rid of the old world charm when renovating.
If it's such a catch why not buy it yourself?
You already own it?
You're the broker with a phony username trying to spark interest in this lemon?
Your a random re shopper trying to spread the joy of a lovely property you've seen...
beat it bonehead...sell your story walking.
if it would be that nice, it would not stay on the market for almost a year with maintenance of $1.25 psf. this is a very odd 1 br apartment, pure and simple.
if they remove the bedroom at the entrance and make it a living room. then make the livingroom a bedroom with a hallways leading to the second bedroom, they would be able to sell this stale listing.
I love the "old world charm" of the 1980s-style glass block in my oversized dining/bedroom (which has a great view!). Thanks for the update!!!
...and also, what's up with the "Jeffersons" font about 1:40 into the video? Movin' on up?
I HATE those pictures with digitally added furniture. It's so cheesy and cheap looking...I don't know, I kind of get the purpose but it just irritates me.
Hold on. I've seen this place too. Recently too.
View: not so great, although I agree, the back of the apt gets great light. The front is eery & dark. The entrance may or may not appeal to some. It did not, to me. In fact, I found the entrance to be poorly maintained with bird shit all over the "atrium". The apt itself is tiny with the worst possible lay out & a lot of wasted space. The bathtub is big enough for a 5-year old.
However, the building is unencumbered & possibly self-managed; hence the low maintenance & the bird shit & the broom in the corner of the atrium. I'm sure it will eventually appeal to someone who can convert it into a modest sized one bedroom.
2 bedrooms? It looks more like a hallway in search of an apartment. Surprising that the realtors didn't spin the bird caca in a positive way. Aviary ambience? Wildlife sanctuary?
You just can't make this sh!t up!
I'm not rich so I must have a different view of what is 'nice' than most people here lol!
I actually agree with @sammy300 who saw it too that the bathroom is tiny and the front is a little sad. But I was shocked that the view/light wasn't highlighted more in the listing since it's one of the best things about the apartment.
Many years ago I lived in the front apt in that building. I was really young so it worked out for what it was and then converted to coops. Woo Hoo! Then after the sale I moved down to the west 60's to a building that converted two years later. The inside prices were even low for back then. Now that I think of it, Manhattan wasn't just affordable, it was a money maker. It also wasn't as clean and safe as it is now so you get what you pay for, I suppose.
@NYCModern - I'm not "rich" by any means. I agree with you about the light, but ONLY in the back of the apartment. It is on the THIRD floor remember, so there is no "view" per se: just the roof tops of a few brownstones & yes I guess, "courtyard" is a sophisticated word to use for the back yard of one of those brownstones that it overlooks, which by the way, had some pretty ugly psychedelic "art installations" (sarcasm) staring right back at me.
Like I said, it could be turned into a modest-sized one bed or even a large studio, & would then have enough appeal for "not rich" people like you & me to actually make an offer.
