This is an actual, working artist's studio in a converted glove factory in the heart of Williamsburg. Huge wood beams and an exposed brick wall provide plenty of charm, and the twelve-foot ceiling adds to the spaciousness.
The bathroom is big, new, and sparkling clean, and the corner kitchen is equipped with everything a cook needs including a gas range, a dishwasher, and every spice known to man except fenugreek. In June 2017 the apartment was redesigned, and a new couch allows for comfortable TV watching or relaxation after the day while a sleeping loft holds a queen-sized Sealy mattress. A built-in heating/air conditioning unit keeps the place comfortable.
Spectrum Cable provides super-fast wifi and crystal clear cable on the 35" TV. A printer/scanner is available via wifi or email. Big windows provide lots of light while double-paned glass ensures quiet.
The fitness center has everything from weight machines and free weights to treadmills, an elliptical trainer, yoga balls and mats. The laundry room has nine washers and dryers, and across the street is a laundromat with same-day service for laundry or dry-cleaning.
The building-wide roof deck has tables, chairs, and planter boxes full of flowers. With stunning views of Manhattan, it's the perfect place to chill out after a long day of sightseeing.
The Glove Factory was built around 1900 but converted into apartments just six years ago with an eye to preserving period details.

I'm a product designer originally from England. My work is on sale at hundreds of museum gift shops from the Art Institute of Chicago to the Saatchi Collection in London, and literally thousands of stores worldwide from Harrods to Target.
While I'm interested in many aspects of design, paper craft is a favorite. You'll probably enjoy my collection of 200+ popup books.
