This loft-like two-bedroom two-bath co-op at 170 East 90th Street comes with a custom cherry kitchen, new hardwood floors, a washer/dryer in the unit, a gas fireplace, brick walls, large mounted flat-screen TV, high ceilings and pre-war details. The building has a shared roof deck, is on a tree-lined street, and allows pets. What the building doesn't have, however, is an elevator, so those toting a youngster would probably rather look elsewhere. The apartment was first listed in April for $899,000, and was listed again by a different brokerage firm in October at a reduced price of $799,000. It sold previously in October 2005 for $830,000, making the $799,000 asking price attractive, despite the four flights of stairs.
