It’s rare to find a prewar condo in the city, which makes
this one-bedroom, one-bath condo in an eight-story, Art Deco elevator building special.
The building at 255 Cabrini Blvd. was built in 1937 by Samuel Minskoff, a major developer in New York City during the 20th century, and designed by
architects Boak & Paris, who worked on several distinctive Manhattan buildings in the 1930s. The apartment, #4A, is listed for $550,000.
The apartment has south and west exposures, and a partial view of the Hudson River. Noteworthy features include herringbone hardwood floors, beamed ceilings, and a sunken living room large enough to include a dining area.

The 905-square-foot layout is unusual, with the so-called “king-sized” bedroom down a hallway and at an angle from the main living area.
The smallish kitchen has a double sink, a stainless-steel stove, and built-in shelving. The cabinets are below a wooden countertop, and there are shelves where you might expect cabinets to be.
The layout includes a dining alcove off the kitchen, and it has been outfitted with an additional countertop above cabinets, mini-fridges, and shelving.
There are two hall closets and two bedroom closets, and more striking built-in shelves.
The windowed bathroom looks like it could use an update.
The black and beige building lobby features a marble fireplace. There is laundry in the building, a live-in super, and a part-time doorman. Cats and dogs are allowed.
Monthly taxes are $512. Common charges are $705 per month. There also is a monthly assessment of $258 through July 2024 for work on the facade.
The 78-unit building is located at the corner of 187th Street, with restaurants and shopping within a block. The nearest subway is the A train at 190th Street, at the entrance to Fort Tryon Park.
