A New Yorker with a big book collection should like this Morningside Heights apartment, which has a room lined with floor-to-ceiling book shelves. Otherwise, the two-bedroom co-op at 611 West 111th Street has all sorts of prewar charm, like parquet floors, moldings and a bay window. The pad last sold in 2010 for $790,000 and it just hit the market yesterday with an ask of $915,000.


The formal dining room, pictured above, is easily the most charming space of the apartment–that’s what a bay window and bookshelves will do to a room! The living room is located directly across and is decorated with some wall moldings. Since it’s a corner apartment on the top floor, with northern, southern, and western exposures, lots of light streams in throughout the day.


The kitchen has been renovated with a terra-cotta tile floor, cherrywood cabinets and a new dishwasher. The south-facing window is the perfect spot for a herb garden, as the listing suggests.



Here’s a look at both bedrooms, one of which has lots of built-in storage. There are also French doors between the second bedroom and dining room, which gives a buyer some flexibility in how to use the space. And those windows all look into the co-op’s large interior courtyard, keeping the apartment super quiet.


The cooperative, known as the Markenfield, is a six-floor elevator building with a laundry room, bike room and storage lockers. It’s located smack dab in the middle of Morningside Heights, within walking distance to Columbia University and St. John the Divine.
