Why You’ll Love It…

There’s lots to love in this newly renovated Fort George 1BR, starting right when you walk in through the large entryway. In addition to hardwood flooring and fresh paint, you’ll be greeted by a custom-built closet with floor-to-ceiling shelves, offering tons of storage for linens, cleaning supplies, or shoes. This entry room is separate from the living room and can be utilized as a dining area or a work-from-home space, depending on your needs. The living area is spacious and offers views of Fort Tryon Park and the Met Cloisters.

The beautiful kitchen is outfitted with white subway tile up the walls, open shelving, a tall pantry cabinet, and gorgeous wooden countertops that match some of the shelves. The avid home cook will also appreciate the dishwasher and the double-wide and super-deep farmhouse sink. Plus, there’s a window to let in lots of light.

Similarly, the bathroom has been updated with a clean and sleek look, complete with a soaking tub and its own window. Speaking of windows, the bedroom has two, in addition to two very deep closets. The bedroom also has enough space for extra furniture, such as a dresser and/or desk.

But the perks of this unit don’t stop at the doorway; the building itself is also pretty great. There’s an elevator, so no worries about taking several flights of stairs. Plus, there are storage units and bike storage available to rent, and the building shares compost, a laundry room, and a community patio. There’s also private parking available. The pet-friendly building is accessible via the 1 and A trains at 190th Street. In addition to the park, the immediate neighborhood has lots to offer, including grocery stores, restaurants, and bars.

… And Why You Might Not

While the open shelving in the kitchen looks nice, it might not provide enough storage for those more accustomed to overhead cabinetry. But besides that, there’s not much to pick on here — unless you’re looking for a non-negotiable amenity like in-unit laundry. But for those looking for a co-op in Fort George, look no further!
