Dating back to the late 1800s, the Piano Factory is a loft cooperative conversion on the site of the former Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company, a piano works and soundboard manufacturer. The interior courtyard originally served as the factory's horse stables and storage yard. Today the landscaped courtyard is punctuated by striking original steel catwalks and inviting seating areas. Pets, pied-a-terres, and subletting are permitted.

Located at 454 West 46th Street on a charming tree-lined block in the heart of vibrant Hell's Kitchen, this home is at the center of quintessential New York living, just steps from the Theater District and the heart of Midtown. Hudson Yards and the Brookfield Manhattan West developments to the south and Columbus Circle shops and Whole Foods to the north provide premier shopping, dining and entertainment, while the High Line and Hudson River Greenway and nearby Central Park provide glorious outdoor space. The eclectic restaurant scene of 9th Avenue is just around the corner and legendary Restaurant Row is a block away.
