Bright apartment with South & East exposures. The eat-in kitchen is large with a full size window. It was recently updated with new cabinets, counters and floor plus modern appliances. The spacious living room has a triple-width picture window on one exposure plus a window and glass balcony door on the other exposure. Outside the kitchen is a foyer that’s large enough to hold a dining table. In this unit the walls can be removed between the living room, kitchen and foyer to create a large, open entertainment area. The balcony overlooks the co-op’s private, landscape park and playground as well as the adjacent Corlears Hook Park, the East River, Brooklyn skyline and Manhattan Bridge. Other nice features are hardwood parquet floors and 4 closets.

Gracing both sides of Grand Street the towers are surrounded by greenery, seasonal flowers, shrubs and mature trees, even the occasional topiary sculpture adding a touch of whimsy to the beautifully maintained grounds. Two interior private parks are ringed with benches providing ample seating for soaking up the sunshine, a quiet spot to enjoy reading your newspaper, or socializing with the neighbors. The colorful playgrounds are the perfect spot for the little cooperators to burn off their excess energy in the fresh air.
Inside the 24-hour attended marble lobbies, renovated elevators will transport you to redesigned hallways. All of the apartments have been furnished with new, easy to clean Traco windows. The fully equipped state-of-the-art exercise room offers cable television while you work out on treadmills, bicycles, ellipticals, Stairmasters and circuit training machines and is open 24 hours accommodating every schedule. The laundry rooms, too, are available for use round-the-clock and are monitored by security cameras so you can feel safe even in the wee hours. Two indoor community rooms and a children’s playroom offer gathering places and activities for the community’s seniors and youngsters. And when you close on your new apartment, be sure to put your name on the waiting list for the two outdoor garages. In the meanwhile, M14 and M22 bus service will bring you right to your door.
The coops are adjacent to Corlear’s Hook Park, which offers a pathway over the FDR Drive to East River Park. The park is a jewel of the NYC Parks Department and offers a jogging path, river promenade, tennis courts, athletic fields, and amphitheater where free concerts are held in the spring and summer.
