Welcome to 20 Strong Place, a charming circa 1900, 5-story brownstone with high ceilings, terrific light, original detail, a deep west-facing garden and a terrace with western views to Manhattan.

It is currently set up as a duplex on the parlor and garden floors, a 1 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor, and the 4th and 5th floors easily combine to create a 2 or 3 bedroom duplex with terrace.
