The “F” line corner at 870 United Nations Plaza is the most sought after line in this ultra-luxe cooperative. Unobstructed, panoramic views south and east to the East River, the New York Harbor and the United Nations astound from every room of this spectacular corner apartment. Originally three bedrooms, now two, the kitchen was enlarged to create a huge, south-facing and sun-flooded eat-in kitchen with spectacular East River and United Nations views, a center island, washer/dryer and ample storage. The primary suite has been opened to the adjacent bedroom, creating a large suite with two en suite bathrooms. Closet space throughout is generous, including two walk-ins. There is a gracious entry foyer and a powder room, which had previously been a full bath.
870 UN Plaza, built in 1966, is a modernist masterpiece in one of Manhattan’s most prestigious co-ops. Impeccably run, it offers white-glove service with doormen, concierge, and resident manager. Amenities include a gym, pilates studio, roof deck with amazing views, private driveway, lobby with triple-height ceiling and stunning lighting and window treatments, parking garage, bike room, laundry facilities, on-site management office, in-house dry cleaning service, private storage (which conveys on sale), and a residents-only “Club 39” which features a lounge, entertainment rooms, two conference rooms, golf simulator and billiards room.
