Although the kitchen is not currently configured with a table and chairs, it does have enough space to be “eat-in.” The 72nd Street bus stop, offering express buses to Manhattan, is steps away.
The two windows in the living room face a courtyard, leaving the space feeling dim.

The balcony offers partial East River views. The home office is a desk in a bumped-out section of the bedroom lined with windows and above the garden.
The kitchen is tight, and its back wall is taken up by a service door, making it off-limits for storage or shelving.

A two-bedroom, two-bath, 1,200-square-foot prewar apartment with a combined living and dining room that has a fireplace, beamed ceilings, archways and a window seat; a windowed kitchen with cabinet-faced appliances; a primary suite; and a secondary suite currently functioning as a TV room, on the second floor of an eight-story doorman elevator building with a laundry room and gym.

Six closets and an efficiently designed kitchen provide ample storage. There’s a smooth flow from room to room. A basement storage unit is included.
One of the two doors in the TV room opens into the kitchen, though it could be closed off if that space were converted into the second bedroom. The co-op allows mortgages to cover only 50 percent of the purchase price.
