Come for the view, stay for the value. This huge 2-bed, 2-bath apartment offers well maintained space you can live in immediately, or the opportunity to renovate and make it truly your own. The unobstructed panoramic view is easy to take in from every room in the apartment and the private balcony is worth coming to see it in person.
Alternatively, this unit can be combined with the neighboring unit to create a floorplan that exceeds 2000 sq. ft. Let us know if you'd like to know more about that option.
We offer virtual and in-person showing appointments daily. Reach out to me directly to schedule a showing. ALL SHOWINGS ARE BY APPOINTMENT.

Roosevelt Islanders love the speak-easy reputation of Roosevelt Island and its oasis of calm and community living minutes away from the city. As we redefine what's important in city living moving forward, Roosevelt Island offers conveniences of ample outdoor space and neighborhood lifestyle that people are looking for. It is an attractive alternative to city living because of the abundance of community amenities and outdoor space, such as: parks, green space, gardens and community gardens, running and biking paths, swimming pools, baseball and soccer fields, basketball and tennis courts, and playgrounds to name a few. Roosevelt Island is committed to green living, and in addition to weekly composting drop-off, one is able to even forage some plants and herbs on the island, and there is a membership run community garden. Other parks include: Southpoint Park and Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms State Park in the south and Lighthouse Park at the north end of the island. Some parks and green spaces include access to complimentary BBQ grills.
The vibrant community also includes the newly developed Cornell Tech campus with landscaped park space, cafes, The Graduate Hotel and rooftop dining at the Panorama Room. Further, residents have access to the New York City public library, schools, post office, the new Foodtown grocery store, two well-stocked bodegas, weekly Farmers Market, Duane Read, Starbucks and a number of local restaurants featuring at least 5 cuisines.
It is commutable by the Roosevelt Island Tram, the F train, the Astoria Ferry line, the M86 bus line, land bridge from Astoria, and CitiBike, making it easy to get all over Manhattan, Long Island City, and Astoria in about 20 minutes. Also, perhaps more important now than ever, people are able to self-park in the parking garage on the island and have a reserved spot. Enjoy all the conveniences of city living, with a suburban setting minutes from the city.
