Can't decide between the Lower East Side and East Village? Don't. Have a solid down payment but want to keep your monthly costs low? Perfect, these are only $498/mo. This sunny, east-facing duplex is comprised of the top two floors on the backside of a pre-war HDFC co-op building. With nobody above and windows on three sides this is truly your private, sunny sanctuary away from it all. Enter on the upper level to a loft-like living floor that blends exposed brick and a modern layout to form a canvas for your own chic design. Enjoy a cross breeze in your large, windowed eat-in kitchen or lounge away in well proportioned living room with two over-sized windows. Downstairs you'll find a rambling master suite. The king sized bedroom has exposed beams and white-washed brick that leads into a bonus room that could be an office, library, sitting lounge or killer walk through closet. The bathroom is designed with a stand up shower, tub by the window, washer and dryer dreams do come true and pedestal sink. Outside the bathroom is a massive storage way and second entrance and exit. 208 Forsyth is a few doors south of Houston in the center of Hip Central and conveniently located around the corner from the 2nd Ave F station and less than 1/3 of a mile to the B,D,M,6,J,Z. The common backyard provides an outdoor respite from the hopping streets and the building provides additional laundry facilities. There are two retail shops that help keep monthlies low and gives the building a healthy financial reserve. While gifting of a down payment is allowed, HDFC Co-ops have maximum yearly income limits based on the number of people occupying the apartment. For one person that is $120,615, two people is $137,775, three people is $154,945.
