Entering Apartment 1A, one is immediately struck by the spaciousness of the sunken living room, the exposed brick walls, the wooden staircase to the balcony that serves as an office or third bedroom, and the north-facing 10′ tall oversized windows that let in the diffuse non-glaring light so prized by artists and photographers. Look in one direction, and the feeling is that one is standing in a formal parlor; look the other way and you are standing in a loft. Both are true of this pre-war two-bed, two-bath apartment with its en-suite master bedroom, second bedroom that will hold a king-size bed, and fully-featured kitchen that opens into the living room. In addition, both bathrooms are granite tiled, there are hardwood floors throughout, plenty of closet space including a storage area over the master bedroom closet, and central air conditioning. There is a current monthly assessment of $237.38 that ends in 2020.
