This cozy Upper West Side two-bedroom stands out with multiple custom built-ins and proximity to both Riverside and Central Parks. It also benefits from two more unusual perks: The co-op at 242 West 104th Street runs a small lending library from the basement, and residents can also be part of the West 104th Street Association, which provides private block security and hosts an annual block party in addition to numerous other community events. It’s now listed for $749,000 after last selling in 2014 for $637,000.
242 West 104th Street
If you’re the kind of person that could spend hours curled up on the couch with a book, this two-bedroom apartment is pretty much the perfect place to do that. It’s located at the cooperative 242 West 104th Street, in the Riverside Drive area of the Upper West Side. The interior design resembles the best kind of library—warm colors, exposed brick, even a rolling ladder that runs the length of the main hallway. The only thing a buyer would need to add? Lots more bookshelves!
