There is a reason our apartments are coveted by every New Yorker. 1199 apartments are oversized and built with families in mind. The hallmarks of every Studio, 1, 2, 3 bedroom apartment and 4 bedroom duplex in the cooperative, are comfort and convenience. Each residence has a spacious foyer, ample closets, bright, sunny living rooms and bedrooms – and many have terraces with spectacular views.


1199 is a self-contained community. Our property features a landscaped plaza with tall shade trees, flowerbeds and sitting areas. Our 40,000 square foot athletic center has a 25-yard, six-lane indoor pool; a regulation-size gym with basketball courts, two roof-top tennis courts; exercise and fitness rooms; yoga and dance studio space; and more.

“I have been living at 1199 for almost 14 years now and I love it here. Walking distance to the train, great amenities and convenient shopping. I have 2 boys and 2 girls and we all love living here because of the sense of community. I have also worked for this company for 16 years and management staff is friendly and really helpful when I need them. All I can say is that it’s a great place to live and I’m glad I chose to raise my children here.”
