227 East 57th Street

A magnificent PreWar apartment house in the very center of the City, 227 was built in 1930, and still retains the magnificent lobby marble floors and the original wood-paneled elevator, the wood gleaming with years of love and more than a little polishing.
Converted to a cooperative in 1985, the building offers 24Hour doormen, live-in Superintendent and an international group of owners. Unusual for a coop, after living here for one year you may sublet your apartment forever! Dogs are permitted.
Washer/Dryers, that well-loved amenity loved by all New Yorkers, are permitted in the apartments, and the building has a complete laundry room in the basement as well. Twenty floors high, the building began with 118 units…many have now been combined. Most apartments have windowed kitchens and many have windowed baths. Windows are doubly-insulated thermal-paned windows, the very best you will find in NYC. Studios, 1BRs and 2 Bedrooms are equally mixed. You will not find a friendlier building anywhere! Truly a vertical village.
