Washington Plaza is a rare opportunity to own a gracious one, two or three bedroom cooperative, artfully re-crafted to blend modern day ease with traditional elegance. Designed by Sylvan Bien, renowned architect of Manhattan’s Hotel Carlyle, Washington Plaza is a superb example of Art Deco architecture, well deserving of its National Register Historic District status. Dedicated to creating an environment of “beauty, light and air,” the founders of Jackson Heights conceived of the original “garden apartment”, a new notion for urban living. True to that vision, Washington Plaza’s stately gatehouse, attended for your convenience at key hours every day, opens to a lushly landscaped private garden with cascading fountains and tranquil sitting areas. Located in the heart of Jackson Heights, majestic architecture and scenic gardens please the eye, while cultural diversity and unparalleled convenience enrich your lifestyle. Great restaurants, fun nightspots and excellent shopping are within blocks, as is the Roosevelt Avenue subway station that has the E, F, M, R and 7 trains whisking commuters to Midtown Manhattan in as little as 12 minutes.
