1. Is there a garage?
2. What is "loft style"?

It's a pre-war building built in 1925 so there is no garage. Cars were a luxury at that time. The management along with the super did worked out a system to park along the back. I believe there is a nominal fee and a reasonable wait list for a spot.

The owner took down a few of the walls making the central space more open. That why I used the description, "loft like".

Please do e-mail me or call if you have any additional questions.
