The apartment features, one-bedroom, two bathrooms, and space for an office

Welcome back to The Six Digit Club, in which we take a look at a newish-to-market listing priced under $1 million, because nice things sometimes come in small packages. Send nominations to the tipline.

Located in the historic Pencil Factory building in Greenpoint, this 965-square foot apartment is being marketed as a one-bedroom, two-bathroom unit, though the broker on the listing does say that the office space can be converted into a nursery or a guest room. Some of the standout features in this apartment include 10-foot high ceilings, oak hardwood floors, and wooden beams in the living room that date back to the 1870s, from when it was still the Eberhard Faber Pencil Factory. Conversion of part of the factory into condos was done under the 421a tax abatement program, and that still applies for the units until 2025. Common charges are at $590 per month. Amenities in the building include a roof deck with views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline beyond, a gym, a party room, and private parking. The building is located just a few minutes away from Franklin Street which is full of some of the trendiest bars and restaurants in the neighborhood.
