Beekman Nieghborhood Community Information
Beekman is located at Midtown on the East Side from the East River to First Avenue, 48th Street to 52nd Street. This neighborhood where Irving Berlin once resided, is composed of beautiful townhouses and grand co-ops situated upon just a few square blocks. Because of its size, the number of Beekman Place apartments for sale at any one time, whether co-op or condo, is limited — but the Beekman area is worth the wait!
The neighborhood centers on Beekman Place, which is two blocks long, lined with grand buildings such as One Beekman Place, a co-op with a garage and an Olympic pool.
