Cabrini Terrace is a post-war, 16-story cooperative building with 217 apartments that are close to 90% owner-occupied. Apartments range from large, airy studios to 3-bedroom units with 1 or 2 baths.
Most apartments have picture windows in the living room; others have triple windows. Many have corner window nooks and panoramic river views. All have hardwood parquet floors over fire-proof concrete construction.
Perched on a Manhattan high point on the Hudson River, it offers sweeping, dramatic views in all directions: north and west to the woods of Fort Tryon Park, the Hudson, the majestic Palisades and beyond to Northern New Jersey, the Tappan Zee Bridge, and Westchester and Rockland Counties; south to the George Washington Bridge and Manhattan skyline; and east to the bridges of Long Island Sound.
The Board of Directors is always aggressively seeking ways to economize and bring efficiencies to the building.
Our solar panel array supplies about 5% of the building's electrical needs. The building has installed two super-efficient natural gas generators that supply up to 70% of the building's power requirements and reduce our carbon emissions by hundreds of tons per year. As a bonus, in the event of a blackout, our own generators are able to provide the building with emergency power for critical systems like the elevators, water pumps, and hallway lights.
