2 Beekman Place, designed by renowned architect Rosario Candela, opened in 1932. Since conversion to a coop in 1970, the building has been lovingly restored to the Art Deco ambience for which Candela was famous. Situated at the southern end of the historic Beekman Place enclave, with easy access to Peter Detmold Park (and its dog-run), East River walks and a nearby public playground, 2 Beekman provides full service to its 86 units by a resident manager and an attentive staff. Amenities of this pet friendly and smoke free residence include a beautifully landscaped residents' roof garden, marble lobby, attended passenger elevator, natural gas heating, basement storage bins, bicycle storage shed and a building-wide distilled water system. 2 Beekman's extraordinary level of service has been accompanied by careful management, confirming the building's reputation as a premier full-service coop in the beautiful Beekman Place enclave.
