Property Description

The upper level consists of a giant double-closeted bedroom, a 10-foot ceiling, a solid oak plank floor, an oversized window admitting southern light, and a full bathroom. Down the staircase is an even larger room, ceramic-tiled, with a fully equipped kitchen(top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances: GE fridge, range, microwave, dishwasher, and WASHER/DRYER combo), a half-bath, and a closet. Pets on a case-by-case basis.

Ideally located on an immaculate block with a community garden and convenient to major transportation, 206 East 124 Street Condominium features 16 luxury apartments with clean modern lines and warm natural finishes, ranging from one- and two-bedrooms to large three-bedroom duplexes. The classic pre-war building was gut renovated and fabulously restored. Although the original facade remains, the interior has been updated with modern plumbing and wiring, keeping the architectural integrity of the neighborhood firmly in mind while providing modern features that today's discerning buyer demands. 206 East 124 Street Condominium is two short blocks from the express 4-5-6 train station, three blocks from the Metro-North station, and within easy reach of the Triborough bridge for each access to major airports. The building is within very short walking distance to both Marcus Garvey Park and the East River Esplanade. Nearby shopping includes Manhattan's largest grocery store just one block away, the new East River Plaza shopping mall (with Costco, Target, and Best Buy among other premium tenants), and several highly-rated restaurants.

One Bed in East Harlem


East Harlem | Manhattan

Quick Profile

Take a stroll through East Harlem and you’ll find a vibrant, culturally diverse neighborhood, which is evident no matter which direction you look. East Harlem is also known as Spanish Harlem, El Barrio, and “The Neighborhood,” as it is home to a population that represents Hispanic immigrants, primarily from Puerto Rico, as well as from Mexico, Cuba, and the Dominican Republic. These immigrants brought their cultures with them, in the form of music, dance, art, and food. During the day, you’ll find the neighborhood filled with opportunities to experience Latin culture. Both the salsa dance craze and the graffiti style of art were born right in East Harlem. There are many great places to sample authentic cuisine, from Rao’s (where you cannot get a table unless you inherit one, and any reservations must be booked years in advance) to sidewalk carts, where you can get the best “street meat” to be had in NYC.

In East Harlem you’ll find a number of innovative educational opportunities in the form of specialized and charter schools that are considered top-notch. Many of these have very competitive admissions criteria and offer curricula that focus on creativity and social awareness. Such schools are a draw for young families that want to raise their children in an educational system that goes above and beyond the standard.

The vibe of East Harlem is one of community and neighbors that interact with each other routinely. There are many small, family-owned and -operated businesses and restaurants that have been neighborhood anchors for years. As you stroll through East Harlem, you will be immersed in sights, sounds and flavors that are straight from Latin American or the Caribbean islands, sometimes both at once. You can sample Puerto Rican-inspired plantain mofongo, which is mashed plantains with garlic and pork rinds, from local sidewalk carts. Or if it is a hot summer’s day, you might enjoy a Mexican-inspired licuado, which is a blended drink similar to a smoothie, made with milk, fruit, and ice. Sometimes, spices, citrus juices, and sugar are added. Although you will find an abundance of authentic cuisine and music no matter where you look in East Harlem.

Prefer to cook at home? East River Plaza offers Target, Costco, and Aldi stores, all of which offer fresh food at reasonable prices.

East Harlem housing consists of more affordable walk-ups, low-rise pre-war buildings, brownstones, and is dominated housing complexes. You can find some comparatively large apartments at reasonable price points, and even some rent-stabilized apartments. Luxury co-op and condo units are being built on the southern boundary of East Harlem.
