Why rent when you can pay the same monthly and own? This spacious and sunny apartment boasts great closet space, good storage, high ceilings, thru-wall AC units, and a windowed kitchen and bathroom. The kitchen is fully functioning, but yes could use an update. The building has an approved contractor that did work on the identical apartment next door. Look at 330 E 90th Unit 5A to see how you can open the kitchen and space even more. The last picture in the listing is 5A. The cost for all was very little and easy to do. Built in 1930, this pre-war building has laundry in the basement and a very secure front door access. Close to amazing neighborhood spots, including Whole Foods, Fairway, many restaurants, shops, mass transit, and more. Along with its very low maintenance and convenient location, this quiet lovely building offers any pied-a-terre or first-time buyer a great low-cost opportunity to own in the Upper East Side. Walk right up (four, not five) flights to this fantastic one bedroom apartment that feels like home. Guarantors, co-purchasing, pieds-a-terres, all allowed! Subletting allowed after 2 years with board approval. We love pets, but please, cats only - no dogs allowed.
