Spacious, this apartment is on the first floor and has 9-foot brand new floor-to-ceiling windows, exposed brick, and stainless steel appliances.

A planted courtyard leads you to John Jay Park and a promenade facing the East River.

The building and courtyard were sites for two movies, Stay (Oct '05) and The Good Shepherd (2006) by Robert DeNiro.

There is a live-in super, night security, bike room, central storage, and coded security doors for safety. Monthly maintenance of $1730 includes gas and electricity.
