Welcome to Apartment 2B: a spacious, pin-drop quiet pre-war home on one of the most coveted tree-lined residential streets in Hell’s Kitchen. Conveniently situated on the second floor and away from the street, you can take the stairs or one of two elevators to your new home. The gracious foyer with its decorative archway welcomes you into the dining gallery & sitting area, and a second archway leads you to the large main room with tranquil tree & courtyard views to the south and east. Ample space and windows lend themselves to an easy conversion into a one bedroom home if so desired (please see alternate floor plan). Beautiful original oak floors with inlay, high ceilings and abundant natural light, windowed kitchen and bath, three large closets, and a separate mirrored dressing room all make this home feel much larger than its footprint. The co-operative offers full-time doormen, resident superintendent, newly landscaped shared courtyard with a grill, bicycle storage, storage cages (based on availability) and laundry room. Pets and pieds-a-terre are permitted and a parking garage (operated separately) is right next door. This stretch of West 55th Street between 8th and 9th Avenues has long served as an anchor for the neighborhood thanks to its active Block Association that advocates for a well-kept block and community, including a beautiful holiday season light display. Within just a few blocks you will find Central Park, Columbus Circle, The Theater District, and subway & bus lines to get you quickly up-, down-, or cross-town. Fabulous restaurants, cafes, shopping, and grocery stores abound including Whole Foods and local favorite Westerly Natural Market.
