This 1,400-square-foot open loft space is located in the heart of the historic, iconic and fun Lower East Side at the corner of Eldridge and Rivington Streets at 193 Eldridge Street; the neighborhood was, a couple of decades ago, a relative bargain, rent-wise, when it was a diverse and low-key stomping ground for downtown rockers and punks. A complicated evolution of New York City’s neighborhoods means the area now counts itself among downtown Manhattan’s chicest and priciest, and this narrow but sunny third-floor walk-up loft above a former dance hall, with one existing bedroom area, is a condominium that’s asking $6,250 a month in rent.
The open loft space has nine-foot ceilings with original wood beams as well as new hardwood floors, three window A/C units and two ceiling fans.
A huge closet off the the bedroom area helps keep the open space tidy. It can be accessed through a doorless passageway. This storage solution becomes a design element, cleverly concealed behind a beautifully wallpapered wall.
The loft’s windowed kitchen has stainless steel countertops and appliances, oak cabinets and a full-size dishwasher, refrigerator and range. A renovated, windowed bathroom holds a washer/dryer.
