Looking for an apartment with space and a good public school option? Glenwood is offering a two-bedroom (convertible three), two-bathroom unit with a balcony in The Pavillion, (500 East 77th Street, pictured) for $4,995. While the York Avenue location may not appeal to all, P.S. 158, the highly-regarded elementary school zoned for this address, is located literally steps away. Adding to the family-friendliness of this choice are the adjacent John Jay and nearby Carl Schurz Parks.
While the building's 1960's architecture, and location, may not be to everyone's taste, this full-service high-rise has renovated apartments with granite kitchens and marble baths. Apartments are spacious, and the building has a gym, 24-hour attended garage, rooftop sun deck, on-site shopping arcade and free shuttle bus to transit.
