Carter's View

Tucked between the Manhattan and Williamsburg Bridges, the former Garfield Building at 142 Henry Street on the Lower East Side has been converted to mostly full-floor condominium apartments and is almost sold out.

The attractive, 8-story, pale-orange-brick building, one of the taller buildings on the Lower East Side, is across Henry Street from the handsome, gray-stone St. Teresa Catholic Church and it is one block south of Seward Park at the intersection of East Broadway and Canal Street.

In addition to having its name emblazoned on the limestone entrance facade, it is also emblazoned, along with its date of construction, 1912, at the center of the top of its Henry Street facade, which has a single column of fire-escapes.

The top two floors of the building have arched windows and the building's facade has nice masonry piers. The building has a roof garden, video security, high ceilings, an elevator sidewalk landscaping and an exposed rooftop watertank. It is diagonally across Rutgers Street from the Captain Jacob Joseph Playground.

The developers and architects for the building, which is close to a F Subway station, are Ronald Castellano and Christopher Haynes.

Initital prices ranged from about $750,000 to $1,675,000. Last month one of the full-floor units, with 30 windows, a designer kitchen and limestone bathrooms, was sold by Padington M. Zwigard of Brown Harris Stevens for about $1,600,000. She said as of last week there was one apartment still on the market with about 850 square feet for about $750,000.
