The West wing of the home holds 2 bedrooms and 2 full baths with one room set as an office/library complimented by a generous bookcase and a large wine-fridge. This room opens into the living room through a massive faux leather door.

This apartment also provides a rare, costly enhancement: its linear diffusers operating the duel zone system for both heat and A/C doing away with the customary unattractive wall and floor units affording a wonderful blend of old world grandeur with a contemporary flair.
Icing on the cake! You step out to the subway and a hotspot of gourmet supermarkets including Citarella, Zabars, Fairway and Trader Joes.
The Apple Bank Building, constructed in 1927, for most of its life was an architecturally-opulent bank (still an incredible sight to see) on the first floor, with offices above. In 2006 a gut rehabilitation of the building preserved the lobby level landmarked bank and made the rest of the building into 29 luxury homes. This is an opportunity to own and live in a piece of history, with great boutique service amenities, windowed exercise room on the second floor, bike- room, storage-rooms and pet spa next to the best schools, boutiques, and restaurants Manhattan has to offer.
