We may most often think of the Hunters Point section of Long Island City as the home of a decade-plus building boom that has resulted in a neighborhood of glassy luxury condo and rental towers with amenities galore. But the sleek, vertical community also has an historic district and streets lined with 19th-century row houses.
Built in 1887 as one of six brick houses, the two-story-plus-basement row house at 21-24 45th Avenue is among the neighborhood’s historic finds, and it’s currently for sale asking $1.2 million. The listing notes that the building is being delivered as-is with SRO tenants. It’s currently set up as a five-unit rental property with a vacant sixth (studio) unit.
