Welcome to this sun-filled corner 7 into 6-room apartment overlooking Park Avenue.

Each room overlooks tree-lined 75th Street. The living room features a wood-burning fireplace with an elegant carved marble mantle.
The windowed eat-in kitchen boasts marble and butcher block countertops, mounted glass paneled wall cabinets, a center counter with double sinks, and an abundance of storage making it ideal for any chef as well as for informal dining.
