865 First Avenue

This extraordinary 17-story apartment building sits in a prime location near the iconic Beekman Place and the United Nations, yet it enjoys the peace and sanctuary of the East River views. An update of a Tudor classic, and erected in 1926, the building has 79 apartments and offers studios, one and two bedroom units. Its design is rather unique with an eclectic arrangement of terracotta detailing in a sophisticated asymmetrical fashion that reflects the whimsical masonry so popular in the 1920’s. The building offers beautiful hard wood floors. pre-war detail and wood burning fireplaces in the upper floor apartments. The excellent cross-town bus service on 49th and 50th Streets and good local shopping make this a very comfortable and convenient neighborhood.
