$3,300/month prewar co-op is just one block from Columbia University
Any Columbia students out there in search of summer housing? This charming apartment, from the prewar cooperative 609 West 114th Street, is now renting. Besides the great Morningside Heights locale, a half block from the campus and a half block from Riverside Park, you get interior details like 10-foot ceilings, crown moldings and French doors. A corner location and windows everywhere you look stream in sunlight throughout the day. Although in a co-op building this apartment has been rented out for years, and was last asking $2,900 a month in 2015.
It’s a pretty simple layout, with an open living/dining/kitchen area right next to the bedroom. The living space has windows in every direction, giving it a feeling of airy spaciousness. According to the listing, the kitchen was updated with new stainless steel appliances that include a dishwasher.
The bedroom is separated from the living room by French doors. Although it doesn’t have a closet, there are two closets lining the entry hall.
The building has a common outdoor space for residents, as well as a newly renovated lobby, laundry, elevator and part-time doorman.
Known as Heathcote Hall, this nine-story brick building was built in 1911 and converted to 63 co-op apartments in 1988. Because of its proximity to Columbia University, rentals are common in the building–there’s another available asking $4,995 per month.
