This two-bedroom penthouse in Long Island City’s The Decker, an eight-story building on 44th Drive, is a modern and well-designed space. The building pays homage to the nautical history of the surrounding neighborhood; it’s named for a tugboat, the W.O. Decker, operated by the Newtown Creek Towing Company.
The apartment has north-facing views and gets good light from oversized windows and the terrace. The large, sun-filled living/dining room (17.4 feet by 14.5 feet) leads out to the terrace.
The open-plan kitchen has Italian cabinetry and stainless steel Bosch appliances. There are four-inch oak floors throughout the unit, as well as a Daikin HVAC system.
The bigger of the two bedrooms has its own bathroom and a walk-in closet; a second bathroom is adjacent to the second bedroom, with a washer/dryer nearby.
Each of the bathrooms have Grohe and Kohler fixtures. There is ample storage space in the home, with five closets in total.
Building amenities include a lounge, outdoor space complete with barbecue grills and furnishings, a recreation room with a pool table, and a fitness center.
Local attractions in the surrounding neighborhood include MoMA PS1 and the Gantry Plaza State Park, a riverside refuge with playgrounds, fishing piers and running paths. Transportation to Manhattan is plentiful, fast and convenient.
Listed by Carlos Simoes and Mary Beth McGill of Modern Spaces, the home is asking $1.385 million with taxes of $1,023 and a monthly fee of $748.
