Built in 1899, this beaux-arts building dovetails modern comfort with an
older East Village — that same collision of grit and grace that inspired
the likes of beat poet Alan Ginsberg, who called this building his home
from 1958-1963. Located on a quiet stretch between Avenues A and B, 170
East 2nd Street’s broad frontage is clad in crisp flemish-bond red brick
with cool limestone accents, welcoming home even the weariest of
working-eyes. The building’s black metal swirls of its original
wrought-iron doors open to reveal a bright entryway, complete with
chandeliers overhead and a century-old tile mosaic below.

The open and airy staircase, with its boot-worn steps and elegant iron
banisters, carries you home. Units on the upper floors boast an unrivaled
seat above the view break, a rarity on the block. Residents can enjoy
another breath of fresh air in the form of a new furnished roof deck which
provides panoramic urban views; whether you look to East River and
Brooklyn, up or downtown, the sights are spectacular.

Every apartment, tailor made to be your modern home in the East Village,
features an in-home washer/dryer, dishwasher, a video intercom system and a
complete gut renovation.
