This is the apartment you’ve been waiting for! High floor, tons of light with breathtaking river and bridge views from every room makes this apartment a must have!

The entry foyer opens to a large living / dining area with beautiful hardwood parquet floors that run all the way thru to the bedroom. The large, windowed eat-in kitchen has a wall that can be opened to the living room creating a loft-like and allowing even more light to flood the living space. The bathroom has a large window. In the bedroom, windows on two exposures offer a panoramic view that include the East River as it bends around Corlears Hook, as well as the Williamsburg, Manhattan and Brooklyn bridges. There are 4 spacious closets plus a pantry in the kitchen.

Features & Amenities :
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.
