MIDTOWN EAST — Just north of the United Nations, 865 United Nations Plaza is a pre-war condo that has been undergoing unit-by-unit renovations since it was purchased by the Samson Management group in 2006.

Apartment #16D, with its eastern exposure, boasts a mixture of timeless character (working fireplace, period detail) and modern luxury (Sub-Zero and GE Profile appliances) to go along with a prime Midtown location.

According to Halstead’s Richard Johnson, this blend of charm and sleek makes #16D’s $865,000 asking price a deal, especially in the an area like Midtown East where 2-bedroom listings are rarely found asking less than $1 million.

“For location, size and value, this apartment is pretty hard to turn down,” said Johnson. “We think it’s a real find.”
