Property Description

This extremely quiet 2-bed, 1.5 bath apartment is a truly special property, steps from Grand Central and business centers, and just a short walk to Central Park, an array of local restaurants, as well as Whole Foods, Trader Joes, and a wonderful Wednesday farmers market. Perfect as either a pied-a-terre or a primary home, the owner is keen to sell after recently getting married. The unit has recently seen significant upgrades to bring it into the 21st century while maintaining its true prewar essence with original crown moldings & hardwood floors throughout. The recently renovated gourmet kitchen is a showstopper, featuring top-of-the-range appliances including a Miele dishwasher and in-unit Miele washing machine and dryer. The renovated full and half bathrooms are fully updated with white walls and subway tile - a truly timeless add to this pre-war apartment. The two large bedrooms and sizable living room, boast 9.5’ beamed ceilings and offer true space that is rare to find in a New York apartment at this price point. To complete the apartment, there are tons of closets in the unit and the option to use a large private storage unit in the basement (costing only $50 per month). The coop is an immaculately maintained boutique elevator building with a live-in superintendent and a weekend attendant, providing coverage 7 days a week. There is a 100-foot-long shared patio with picnic tables and planters, a true oasis in the heart of the city. The building offers a shared central laundry room, two elevators, and a bike room. Pets are permitted with Board approval. Guests and package deliveries are buzzed into the building from your cell phone that is linked to the intercom system. Fees include all building taxes, water bills, and full access to these wonderful amenities. The building is wired for Verizon FIOS. Pieds-à-Terre, guarantors, and parents buying for children are all considered subject to board approval, and there is no flip tax when selling. Subletting requires Board approval and no less than three years of occupancy beforehand.

Two Beds in Turtle Bay


Turtle Bay | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Turtle Bay is best known for hosting the world’s dignitaries at United Nations once a year as the world institution sits on the eastern edge of the neighborhood along the East River.

But this midtown location offers a lot more, a bustling neighborhood teeming with high-rise apartment buildings and an easy walk to the Midtown business district.

Over the past two decades, developers have assembled almost every corner development site along Second Avenue and have built straight up. Not much left to assemble.

Some of the more glamorous, and of course most expensive, addresses are in close proximity to the United Nations. Trump World Tower, which caused a big stir with area residents, in particular, Walter Cronkite, when it was built sits just north of the United Nations Grounds. 

In contrast to the proliferation of the residential highrise, Turtle Bay does have some lovely tree-lined streets between the avenues. In particular, Turtle Bay Gardens, which fronts both 48th Street and 49th Street between Third and Second Avenue has always been a haven for the rich and famous.
