250 E Houston Street, a landmark in the East Village, known as Red Square, contains some of the most sought-after residential homes. Highlights of this building are the clock on the roof and an eighteen-foot statue of Lenin. Surrounded by restaurants, taverns, galleries, and a grocery store across the street, 250 E Houston draws those who want a true neighborhood atmosphere. Within walking distance is Hamilton Fish Park, over four acres of sports, games, a recreational center, and an Olympic-size pool. There are programs for both children and adults at this historic landmark.
Apartments in this historic building are difficult to come by. The rooftop garden and views are incomparable. Central air conditioning and floor-to-ceiling windows are just a couple of the apartment’s amenities, which also include a 24-hour doorman, rooftop sun deck and storage. Openings here are rare.
