423 Atlantic Avenue, boerum hill, loft, living room

There are a lot of New York apartments trying to sell themselves as lofts that just aren’t. That makes it especially refreshing to see this loftier-than-thou apartment, from the former Ex-Lax factory at 423 Atlantic Avenue in Boerum Hill, hit the market. The factory was constructed in the 1920s and was eventually combined with adjacent buildings that were being used as a bottling plant. In 1981, the complex went co-op — and as a residence it still retains some of the Ex-Lax advertising memorabilia. This apartment was designed by an architect to maximize all available space. They especially took advantage of the 15-foot ceilings, building out not one but two lofted living spaces.
