Residence 6D is a large, pre-war two-bedroom, one-bath residence located at 170 Second Avenue, a striking Art Deco full-service cooperative building at the corner of Eleventh Street in the East Village. The spacious north and east facing corner home boasts Empire State Building views, lovely light, and many original details in good condition.
The grand entry foyer/gallery leads to an expansive living room, which is the centerpiece of this majestic, comfortable home. This 25'x13' room looks out over a lovely tree lined block of 11th street and has views north to the skyline and its iconic buildings. Both the living room and the foyer open into the large windowed eat-in kitchen, which features original full height kitchen cabinetry with crown molding, Carrera marble countertops, vintage linoleum flooring and a large dining area with the skyline views.
The spacious corner bedroom overlooks the treetops of Eleventh Street and is outfitted with a deep closet and two additional built-in closets around a window seat. A large second bedroom, complete with two closets, and built in bookcases under the windows, faces the back and provides a quiet, peaceful retreat. Conveniently located between the two bedrooms is a windowed, black and white tiled bathroom with the original (reglazed) 5.5'cast iron soaking tub, pedestal sink, and a large separate shower.
High beamed ceilings and exquisite moldings throughout are emblematic of the original details from the historic 1929 building that have been thoughtfully maintained in this home.
170 Second Avenue has a beautiful lobby with terrazzo floors, brass chandeliers, Art Deco murals and a mahogany-paneled elevator. It is impeccably maintained by a wonderful full-time staff, comprised of a live-in superintendent, porters, and 24-hour elevator attendant. Amenities include central laundry, storage and bike rooms. It is located near fantastic restaurants, Union Square, Astor Place, Tompkins Square Park and public transportation.
