The building began life as a hotel, which explains quirks like the tiny kitchen and complimentary daily housekeeping. The foyer could fit a dining table. The living room and bedroom face south.
The co-op sits on leased land, which is part of the reason the monthly fees are so high. But the apartment’s price is lower than usual to compensate.

The home is spacious and has a smooth flow from room to room. There are multiple Hudson River views.
The building feels a bit marooned by the side of a highway, and the closest stores are a few blocks away.
