building at 227 East 57th Street


Out-of towner considering to buy in this building.
Any advice/concerns regarding area, building, etc. would be greatly appreciated.

Is this going to be your primary residence?

If not, make sure the co-op allows pied-a-tierres.

building description

"Converted to a cooperative in 1985, the building offers 24Hour doormen, live-in Superintendent and an international group of owners. Unusual for a coop, after living here for one year you may sublet your apartment forever! Dogs are permitted"

sounds like they allow pied a terres

Thanks! Truth - I've looked up the Doe Fund and East Midtown Association - impressive. What a great city NYC is.

Does anyone know how hard is the board in this building?

Is this a land lease building ??

It isn't a land lease building, it's a coop

Like the area very much - particularly with the recent addition of Whole Foods right there outside your door. But I find the cc's in this building a bit too high, and I happen to detest ugly window mounted A/C units. The building next door (225 East 57) is a post war building (and so admittedly an entirely different feel aesthetically), but the units (particularly the 1 bedrooms) are massive, the cc's are lower, it has central A/C, and it is very well run/managed...

^ ? land lease has nothing to do with ownership structure (co-op or condo)...

It isn't a land lease, the building owns the underlying land....And it's a coop.
