Construction

In 1939 the previous structure at 35 East 10th Street was demolished and construction began on the building that still stands there today. The building is constructed of red brick and boasts a concrete facade, very common for structures in pre-World War II New York. Construction was completed in 1940 and the building was approved for occupancy in July of 1941.

The building was initially built to house offices and held that function for nearly 35 years. But in 1976 the building was re-purposed into an apartment building featuring rental suites. In 1984 the building was incorporated into a cooperative and has remained as such to this day.[1]

Layout and Features

35 East 10th Street houses studios, 1 bedroom and 2 bedroom suites ranging from 450 square feet too nearly 800 square feet. The building offers expansive 12 foot ceilings and hardwood flooring. While some units feature the original hardwood, many have upgraded to newer flooring.

While there are laundry facilities in the building, some units feature their own washer and dryer. Many of the upper floor suites feature terraces and balconies, some as large as 580 square feet.
