Did you know that Charlie Chaplin lived in the Towers in Beechhurst? Well, in fact he did! When he was 21 he moved to Beechhurst, New York from London. At this time he signed a motion picture contract with Keystone Films. He made his silent films right here in Astoria Studios and he lived in the Towers!
Today there are only two - ONE bedroom apartments available in this direct location. Both apartments have 13' ceilings, hardwood floors, renovated kitchens and baths. Both apartments are relatively new to the market. Just keep in mind that this building is a 6 story walk up and the apartments that are for sale are on the first and third floor. The asking price for the two available apartments range from $227,000 - 235,000. (photo courtesy of MLSLI.com)
This building was build in 1920 and is declared a landmark. The apartments range in size from 800 sq. ft to 1050 sq. ft. They are located on Powell's Cove Blvd in Beechhurst.
