Here is your opportunity to connect with a classic prewar building that takes you back to the times of horse & buggy in Manhattan. It puts you right on the top location of Union Square Park.
The Swannanoa is a 10-story Neo-Renaissance apartment building designed by Gilbert Schellinger who was a renowned and prolific designer of residential buildings back in the late 1800's and 1900's.
If size matters, you may want to stop here as the apartments @ the Swannanoa are on the small side.
If being an owner in a gorgeous prewar building with a top Union Square location appeals to you, then please read on. This flat can work real well as a starter apt, pied-a-terre or primary residence. The broker's first full-time residence in the city was a studio just like this on the 4th floor and I reside full-time in this building now with my family.
