If you’re looking for a centrally located pre-war apartment building with all its classic pre-war charm in place you should consider viewing 227 East 57th Street. Built in 1930 and designed by Boak & Paris, this coop is known for its gorgeous lobby which features its original marble floor and wood-paneled elevators. Residents of this building will enjoy a full time doorman, a live in superintendent, and an eclectic group of neighbors.
The building has 119 apartments across 19 floors. Apartments range in size from studios to 2 bedrooms. Some units in this building have been combined over the years and converted into large three bedrooms. Most apartments are characterized by high beamed-ceilings, with strip wood floors and charmingly large bay windows that have North or South views of the city. On higher floors the building sets back and many of the units have terraces that overlook the city.
The neighborhood has everything a New Yorker needs within a couple block radius. South of the building are some of the city’s best stake houses – PJ Clarks, Wolfgang’s, and Bobby Van’s. Just east of the building is the very residential Sutton Place area along with quick access to the FDR and Queens Boro Bridge for when you have to leave town. A little north on 59th Street is all the major subway lines. West of the building is Blomingdales, Home Depot, The Container Store, Fifth Avenue shopping and Central Park.
This building allows pied-a-tiers, co-purchasers and has a lenient sublet policy.
