    That poor little church garden ... within 10 years it will be surrounded on all four sides.

    Good for growing moonflowers.

    This unit ^ hould have a good view of whatever goes up over at Hudson Yards (at least until they build the inevitable big one on the SE corner of 30th / Fifth -- and that might get built before anything big rises at HY).

    That's a nice kitchen.

    Thumbs up Nice

    Good ceiling height too: looks to be at least 9' feet.

    Congratulations on your new home; and thanks for posting the photos.

    I'm hoping for some kind of nighttime illumination. Maybe light a few of the uppermost piers.

    The exterior looks pretty much complete.

    What about the other exterior? The one with the blank wall facing east. Is it at least painted over?

    Not sure but I think it's all brick veneer.

    This is a prime example of a midblock tower which is out of context with its surroundings, clogging the streets, and casting shadows every where it goes (see MOMA thread)

    Really nice building. The interior of guin's apartment is very nice!

    Now I'm curious and want to know how much rent is. *goes to look*

    The maintenance is probably more than you can afford. Just some constructive criticism Benniest, I've seen you posting on a number of threads about how much apartments in this historic building or this new building costs? That's something to think about once you make your first million. All the buildings you asked about the studios will start at $3,000, the average price for a studio in Manhattan is $2,000. Its not impossible to find a studio less than that but you'll have a very hard time finding it online, don't forget there are millions of people doing the same thing you are doing, looking for a steal online for Manhattan real estate. Your best bet is to find some temporary housing in NYC, in other words month to month (you probably can't get this in Manhattan) and then either deal with a broker, make some networking connections, talk to landlords, this is how you find deals is NY.
