Dating back to 1874, 454 West 46 Street is a former piano actions manufacturing complex that went out of business in the Great Depression. The buildings, which languished for years, were acquired in 1979 by Richard A. Klein and Charles P. West, who had the vision to convert the factory into co-op loft apartments. The Piano Factory opened in 1982, offers 48 stunning loft apartments. The original yard with storage sheds is now a gorgeous European-like interior landscaped courtyard and captivating oasis unlike any other in NYC, awaiting beyond the Romanesque Revival archway and wrought-iron gated entrance. This well-run, self-managed co-op has very low monthlies, a live-in super, and new intercom system. Pets, pied- -terres and subletting are allowed. The location is exceptional, mere blocks from the incredible Hudson Yards and Brookfield Manhattan West developments, Time Warner shops, Whole Foods, the High Line, Hudson River Greenway, Broadway theatres, and some of the best dining along nearby Ninth Ave. Transportation options are plentiful with the Port Authority and Times Square affording access to A/C/E, 1/2/3, N/Q/R, S and 7 trains.
