Situated on the twelfth floor of 170 Second Avenue, the East Village's preeminent cooperative at the corner of 11th Street and Second Avenue, this tastefully renovated one-bedroom home boasts spectacular sunlight and expansive Empire State and Chrysler building views from all rooms.

Enter though a gracious foyer into the large living room with an open kitchen where two large windows with northern exposure reveal picture perfect open skyline views. The thoughtfully reimagined kitchen features a breakfast bar, abundant cabinet space and high-end appliances, including a Miele dishwasher, stainless steel LG refrigerator and built-in GE microwave.

The oversized master bedroom features those same extraordinary skyline views and is outfitted with two deep built-out closets. The windowed, bright white bathroom has been completely renovated but retains the original reglazed cast iron 5.5-foot soaking tub.

Nine-foot beamed ceilings, refinished original parquet oak floors, and base and crown moldings throughout serve to highlight the charm and character of this modernized pre-war residence.

170 Second Avenue features a beautiful lobby with original terrazzo floors, brass chandeliers, Art Deco murals and a mahogany-paneled elevator. It is impeccably maintained by a wonderful full-time staff, comprised of porters, a live-in superintendent and 24-hour elevator attendant. Amenities include central laundry, storage and bike rooms. It is located near fantastic restaurants, Union Square, Astor Place, Tompkins Square Park and public transportation.
