18 foot high ceilings & 15 tall windows overlooking Bryant Park, in a quietly elegant prewar building make this historic loft space truly one of a kind in a sea of look alike new construction.

The loft is presently approximately 800 sf with the ability to build up to an additional legal 400+ sf mezzanine. (See drawings.)
Originally, this apartment was half of the library in the prestigious Engineers Club, built by Andrew Carnegie in 1907. The space still has the original millwork that has been preserved and left in place and the huge marble fireplace that was a gathering spot for the clubs illustrious members, like Mark Twain, Thomas Edison, Cornelius Vanderbilt , President Herbert C. Hoover and Nicola Tesla, to name a few ...
The elevator opens onto a spectacular landing that serves only one other tenant. It has 20 high ceilings and a marble staircase that provides an impressive welcome to your guests.
The beautiful Beaux Arts building boasts a handsome limestone lobby with an grand marble staircase, but the intimate, old world, club like feel of its original incarnation remains intact. There is a 24 hour doorman with a reception desk to receive packages and assist your guests, a live in superintendent and a full time porter staff.
Located in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in NYC, there is a Whole Foods Market just 1 short block away. Every possible subway, train or bus is at your doorstep, while the park is like your personal back yard. Steps off 5th Avenue and just minutes to Chelsea, the High Line, Soho and Theatre district, you are close to everything but come home to the gilded age in this one in a million home.
The loft space has been brought down to the bricks by the current owner, so there are no surprises. The electric has been upgraded to 220 volts to serve an HVAC system that is possible in this apartment and all new wiring in conduit has been brought around the entire space. The one common wall has been insulated and finished in Quiet Rock professional soundproofing sheetrock (floor to ceiling 18 X approximately 32 ) so the hard part is done.
This type of space rarely becomes available. Bring your contractor and make it yours.
