East River Coop, 455 FDR Drive

Co-op located in Lower East Side, between Cherry Street & Grand Street

Description of East River Coop at 455 FDR Drive

The co-op at 455 FDR Drive is part of East River Co-op, a four-building complex that counts 1,672 apartments within. This particular building is situated at the prominent point of Corlears Hook, a cape that projects into the East River, allowing for dramatic panoramas of the river, Brooklyn and Queens skylines, and the Williamsburg Bridge from many units even on the lower floors. Many apartments feature large picture windows and balconies.


The co-op features a 24-hour attended lobby, a fitness center, a children’s playroom, and a community room. The complex offers expansive landscaped grounds that also include on-site parking. Moreover, the building sits across from the Corlears Hook Park and the East River Promenade, which offer ample green space and sports fields on and off the waterfront. 


The building sits in a quiet corner of the Lower East Side, yet the neighborhood’s famed shopping, dining, arts, and entertainment lie within a short walk, as do the East Broadway and DelanceySt/Essex St stations of the F/J/M/Z trains. The M14A, M21 & M22 buses stop in front of the building, and Citibike stations are located nearby. A supermarket and a 24-hour convenience store are located within a block, while the Essex Crossing complex with a Trader Joe’s, Target, and Regal Cinemas is also located nearby.


The co-op permits guarantors, pied-a-terres, gifting, and subleasing (after two years of ownership and with a sublet fee). Dogs are not permitted.
