Today’s co-op is in a nearly 100-year-old building in the Jackson Heights Historic District. This building at 35-48 80th Street is one of 14 along 80th Street known as the Greystones, built in 1917-18 by George H. Well.
Unit 22, a large corner apartment, has three bedrooms and two bathrooms, and it looks like it’s been very well kept.
The 10-foot-long, windowed galley kitchen, which has new-looking appliances and tons of cabinet storage, opens out to the dining room.
In terms of bedrooms, one is quite small at 10-by-7 feet (the sellers appear to have used it as an office), but the other two are a bit more reasonable, measuring 13-by-10 feet and about 13-by-13.
The building is in an excellent location near the heart of Jackson Heights, with endless dining options and other conveniences. It’s around the corner from a library and post office, just a couple blocks from the 82nd Street stop on the 7 line and a few more blocks to the 7 at 74th Street and Broadway.
The asking price is $698,000, plus $775 in monthly co-op maintenance.
What do you think? Is it a fair price to live in this storied building?
