The once-sleepy waterfront neighborhood of Greenpoint is in the midst of a transformation into one of the most coveted and talked-about Brooklyn ‘hoods. The Pencil Factory condominium at 122 West Street was one of the first conversions of the area’s historic industrial buildings. Built in 1872 and expanded in 2012 from the original Eberhard Faber Pencil Factory complex, the name of the building was also used by artists, designers and other creatives who had studios in the building. The $3,400 per month rent may seem high for this sophisticated-yet-comfortable one-bedroom-plus pad, but with popularity comes higher rent.

The Greenpoint waterfront is a block away, so there are some amazing views, plus 11-foot ceilings add to the loft-like experience. A renovated kitchen with a massive ten-foot-long island, plus an in-unit washer-dryer, contribute the comforts of home.

Adjacent the living area, a smaller room can be an office, a spare bedroom or a massive walk-in closet, with storage space above.

The home’s main bedroom is spacious with a big, modern casement window, wood floors and high ceilings.

One of the best things about this building is its roof deck that seems to go on for days, with panoramic views of the East River and the Brooklyn, Manhattan and Queens skylines that do likewise. Also available in this elevator/doorman building are a club room, a lounge with a pool table, a fully-stocked gym, and bike storage (with no extra fee for renters). Parking and extra storage are also available; the East River Ferry is steps away, and it’s only two blocks to the G train.
