This historical pre-war building was developed by Schwartz & Gross in 1924 on the corner of 72nd street and West End Avenue and was converted to Cooperative residences in 1980. Its residents are just steps to parks and the best public transportation as well as a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants. Building amenities include a 24 hour attended lobby, live-in-super, laundry room, gym, bike room, storage units and a beautifully restored lobby.
(NOTE: Well-run building has a new roof, 2 new elevators, has undergone its facade work already, and the building owns its own prized commercial space - and all income from it. There have been no assessments in almost ten years and, unlike most buildings, the co-op is paying down substantially all of its mortgage by 2026.)
