111 East 80th Street
It is nearly impossible to get this style of pre-war elegance, in such a prime location without going through the time, expense and aggravation of a co-op board. This is co-op living, with rental convenience.
You’ll feel it as soon as you walk into the lobby and are greeted by the elevator man, a throwback to a time when service and courtesy were the norm. Imagine yourself living right off of Park Avenue in a classic six with herringbone floors, French doors, massive closets and completely updated kitchens and baths. Enough room for all of the clothes, shoes, toys and golf clubs accumulated over the years. Perfect for those who are renovating their home nearby and need the convenience of not having to switch school districts.
I have also seen many people who have recently sold along Park Avenue take a “time out” and rent for a year or two before deciding if it’s off to the Hamptons, Westchester or finally decide that a larger apartment in Manhattan is now within reach.
If the four variables are price, size, location and amenities - then 111 East 80th Street is definitely worth a look.
A couple of great comparisons would be 210 East 68 St., 115 East 92 St. and 435 East 79 St. As always, give me a call before heading over - it’s like having a ‘friend who lives in the building.’
About the Upper East Side
The Upper East Side is famous for its storied past of old money, elite schools, world class museums and proximity to Central Park. But cross east of Park Avenue and the draw is some of the best values in all of Manhattan. So for many, the convenience, value and size of the apartments is a major draw. With all the money you save by moving uptown you can take advantage of some of the greatest shopping and dining options nearby. So take that extra cash and splurge on The Atlantic Grill, Bouley or Café Sabarsky, after lunch head down to Prada, Armani or Zitomers. Sunday morning calls you to jog around the Central Park Reservoir-stop at Eli’s for some fresh lox and enjoy the Sunday Times on a blanket on the great lawn. New York living at it’s finest.
