Part of the former Brooklyn City Railroad Company Building on Old Fulton Street, this stunning, three-level apartment is now on the market for $1.975 million. The co-op opens up into a massive living room area, which features nine-foot-tall windows facing north and west, that offer views of the Brooklyn Bridge, and the Fulton Ferry Landing pier.
The nearly 13-foot-tall, beamed ceilings make the space seem even more airy, and the exposed brick in this room adds a touch of warmth. A spacious walk-in closet and dressing room are also located on this level.
The bedroom is located up a flight of stairs in this loft, and because of the low ceiling heights here, is perhaps the weakest link in an otherwise charming space. The lower level of this loft is currently setup as a recreation room and comes with tons of windows.
The apartment is part of a building that was built around 1861 as the headquarters for the Brooklyn City Railroad. The “railroad” provided horse-pulled trolleys that ran on rails, and provided a vital connection from different parts of Brooklyn to the Fulton Ferry Terminal, near the headquarters.
In later years the building became a space for light manufacturing until it was converted into apartments in the 1970s.
