Sold & Closed. Situated at the intersection where MacDougal and King streets meet, the romantic streetscape is set slightly off the grid, yet surrounded by the very best of Manhattan. Apartment 3B is a spacious one bedroom and one bath apartment with an ideal layout. A long entry foyer and hallway leads into a large and flexible living room area. The kitchen has been updated, and there is a separate dining alcove. The bedroom has two big windows and a wall of closets. The apartment is a corner unit with eastern, western, and northern light.
Built in 1963, as a residential apartment building, the layout is modern and complements a mid-century esthetic. Because the building was always intended to be apartments, there are windows and closets in every room. Apartment 3B has been updated within the last ten years. The previous owner renovated the kitchen and added storage. The current owner has lovingly maintained the apartment and retained the simplicity of the original design.
Soho is a living museum inhabited during the day by small businesses, tourists, entrepreneurs, retail, and high fashion. The streetscapes and uniformity of architecture on certain blocks are recognizable to everyone as the backgrounds of every movie ever made in New York. The western part of Soho, where 2 King Street is located, offers a slightly different identity to the neighborhood with its resemblance to Greenwich and the West Village. In the evening, Soho entertains until about 11pm. Most restaurants close by midnight, and the neighborhood quiets down for the residents living in the tenements, co-ops, and lofts above.
2 King Street is an elevator cooperative with 40 units on 7 floors and features a residential garage, live-in super, central laundry room, on-site dry cleaning, and citi-bikes on tree-lined MacDougal Street. The central location has many subway lines within a short distance. Cats are welcome. New dogs are not currently permitted.
