Condo pick of the week

You'll be wowed with views of the Manhattan skyline in this LIC condo

Out of the Long Island City residential construction boom has come a glut of high-rises offering unobstructed views of the East River and the Manhattan skyline beyond. This two-bedroom condo in a luxury development called The View comes with eyes on the Chrysler Building and the UN, and a private balcony from which to take it all in. (You'll also be right on top of LIC's waterfront park and close to the East River ferry stop.)

The vistas drive up the price, though: Listed by Modern Spaces for $2.885 million, the apartment costs above the neighborhood median, according to a StreetEasy search. 

The apartment is a corner unit, so you can expect your living area (see the main image) to be sun-drenched during the day, thanks to walls of floor-to-ceiling windows; note the private balcony on one side of the space. The modern open kitchen features cabinetry with a glossy sheen, an island, and upscale appliances, including a dishwasher and wine cooler. 

You won't get the same skyline views (or, sadly, the adorable dog pictured) in the master bedroom, but you can still expect abundant natural light, as well as roomy closets and an en suite bath. The latter is spacious, featuring a double vanity and marble tile in the shower. The second bedroom is currently configured as an office, and offers direct access to the balcony should you need a breather from work; plus, you'll find an additional bathroom in the hallway. 

While the property is just at the water's edge, it's not remote: the Vernon-Jackson Boulevard 7 train stop is a few blocks away. And in addition to the adjacent parkland, tenants have access to a roof deck, pool, and health club, as well as concierge and 24-hour doorman service.
