Price reduction! Located in an elegant prewar co-operative near Central Park is your opportunity to redesign a spacious studio apartment with 10' ceilings and excellent southern light into your primary residence or pied-a-terre. Bring your architect and imagination, as this apartment has not been renovated in decades and needs substantial work, most notably in the kitchen and bathroom. When your renovation is complete, you can enjoy New York winters in front of your wood-burning fireplace; a sought-after rarity throughout Manhattan.52 East 78th Street was built at the turn of the twentieth century, and is one of two prewar buildings comprising The Finch co-operative. Formerly the home of Finch College; a women's private school whose alumni include Vanderbilts, Roosevelts, Whitneys, and Isabella Rossellini. After the college closed its doors in 1975, the stately red brick and limestone buildings were converted into residential apartments. Amenities in this boutique co-operative include a part-time doorman, Monday-Friday from 12:00pm-8:00pm and 2:00pm-10:00pm on weekends, an elevator, a live-in resident manager, and a laundry room. Pieds-a-terre, co-purchasing, subletting and pets are welcome with board approval. Located less than two blocks away from Central Park, the Finch is in close proximity to museums such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Met Breuer, the Frick, and the Guggenheim. Close to the The Mark Hotel, the Carlyle, the Surrey, galleries, boutiques and fine dining. Please note that there is a monthly assessment in place in the amount of $260.67 until June 2021. The assessment is in addition to the monthly maintenance.
