New York City’s third oldest building, the legendary Captain Joseph Rose House at 273 Water Street, standing 4 stories tall and 25 feet wide, was built circa 1773 by Joseph Rose as his private residence. In the 19th century, the building was converted to commercial space and used as a cobbler shop, apothecary, and then a boarding house before the Civil War. In 1863, it became a dancehall, and later was used as a warehouse before its transformation into 4 luxurious residences in 1998. This unique self-managed condominium offers a landscaped common roof garden, laundry room, basement storage, low monthly common charges.
The coveted neighborhood melds an era of historic charm with modern-day allure, offering a wide variety of shops, eateries and public transportation minutes away. Pier 17, iPic Theaters and restaurants inspired by world-class chefs like Jean-Georges Vongerichten and David Chang make the Seaport area downtown’s most premier cultural, culinary and retail destination.
