103-25 68th Avenue #2D

A rare find in the current Forest Hills market, this sun-bathed, two bedroom, one and a half bath apartment with southern and western exposures is cavernous at approximately 1,100 square feet of living space (enough space for multiple humans and their four-legged friends to live in harmony). With a slate of amenities to rival any full service building in the neighborhood, this doorman residence awaits those relocating from the city seeking more room to stretch out or Long Islanders that desire city living at a more tranquil pace.

The living room itself is larger than most studio apartments and clocks in at an astounding 12′ x 35′, supporting the largest couches you can find with room to spare for a complete dining area. The adjacent renovated kitchen, used for barely two years since being updated, features stone counters, under-mount sink, stainless appliances galore (dishwasher, stove, microwave, and wide refrigerator with freezer drawer and ice maker), cabinetry at every turn, and an oversized window with western exposure for ample natural light.

No shoebox sleeping here: both the master and second bedrooms are more than generous at 11′ x 17′ and 11′ x 13′, respectively. The master delivers with southern and western exposure and two closets adjacent to a windowed full bath while the second bedroom comes through with southern exposure, two closets, and an ensuite half bath. There are three additional common area closets for a total of seven — that’s right, SEVEN closets in addition to all that kitchen storage — in an expansive layout with wonderful hardwood floors throughout.

Located in the tree-lined, park-filled community of Forest Hills and easily accessible from Yellowstone and Queens Boulevards, The New Yorker is a full service elevator doorman cooperative with a grand lobby entrance, live-in super, fitness center, children’s playroom, windowed laundry room, bike room, and onsite indoor parking. Resident owners are allowed to have multiple dogs (of any weight) and cats reside in the apartments and the sublet policy is liberal: up to five of every seven years after two years of owner occupancy. Subway and bus access is very convenient: the 67th avenue M/R subway station is only a 4-minute walk with easy transfer to both E/F trains and the Q72 LGA Airport bus. Entry is provided to the building’s main and secondary entrances via ramps for easy access when using strollers and carts. The building is currently zoned for P.S. 196 Elementary School.

There is a standard cooperative application process required by the board of directors. The maintenance is $1,184.83 per month, which was 39% tax deductible as of 2014, and includes heat, water, and gas. There is currently a monthly assessment of $43.56 in place through 7/1/2021 for capital projects.
