There are some lovely prewar details in this renovated co-op.

Bond New York

Located in the Astoria Lights co-op development, which has four renovated prewar buildings, the listing for 24-65 38th St., #2A describes it as "loft-like." That may be a stretch but there is some character and charm, thanks to prewar features like hardwood floors with inlaid detailing and exposed brick, along with some modern amenities. The two bedroom, one bath is listed for $715,000.

The open living room is spacious, and the windowed kitchen is outfitted with stainless steel appliances, including a dishwasher.

The exposed brick in this apartment has a lot of character.


Both bedrooms have long closet spaces—one goes wall to wall.


The bathroom also has a window, as well as a soaking tub, and the co-op has it's own washer/dryer.


The building, which is pet-friendly, has a common roof deck with skyline views, as well as a fitness center, shared entertaining space, and bike and personal storage. Maintenance is $865 a month.


Shopping and dining options can be found along Steinway and 30th streets. The nearest subway, the N and the W trains at Astoria Boulevard, are a few blocks away.
