*Renovated Harlem 1BR!!*
You’ll be ready to cook the moment you step through the door, with a huge kitchen that blends rustic chic and modern convenience. To the right is your stove, fridge, granite counters, backsplash and cabinets. The opposite side of the room presents a tall window, an exposed brick wall and a decorative fireplace. A hanging dome chandelier adds to the vintage charm. There’s plenty of space here to cook, dine and unwind—invite friends over to share the good times.
Beautifully varnished hardwood floors run the entire length of the unit. Sliding doors open to reveal your all-purpose bedroom and living space, boasting another glorious exposed brick wall. A cool old triple-lamp chandelier hangs from the ceiling, and two huge windows allow in plenty of natural light. You’ll also get two closets with nicely finished wooden doors. Picture the possibilities, from sleeping quarters to work space to whatever else piques your creativity.
The updated bathroom is at the front end of the apartment, with a tile floor, white brick wall tiles, a cool wall-hung sink and a combo tub and shower. The building itself is a true brownstone classic, originally built in 1900. At the top is a roof deck while the street level is home to retail, including Tony’s 125th Pizza of Harlem. Bring a cheesy pie upstairs when you don’t feel like cooking!
This is East Harlem, also known as Spanish Harlem back in the day. From fun dive bars to tacos and bodegas, it’s a neighborhood that continues to evolve and fascinate. A heart-shaped pocket park is right around the corner, while the larger Triboro Plaza is across the street. Stroll a few blocks to Harlem River Park, Wack the Crack Playground (featuring Keith Haring’s iconic murals), and Marcus Garvey Park with its swimming pool and summer concerts. The northern end of Central Park is about a mile away.
It’s just the beginning, with slices of NYC life wherever you look. You’ll find clothing boutiques, restaurants and funky mom-and-pop shops all along East 125th Street. The PS 57 Farmstand is open Wednesdays, with fresh fruit, veggies and baked items. The 125th Street subway station is just a block and a half from your building.
