Fort George

Near park On the rise

Named for a Revolutionary War era fortification, Fort George is truly an epitome of American independence.

Descriptions of 21 Magaw Pl

A short commute from midtown, this is a place where families have BBQs in the park, where neighbors laugh on sunny stoops while the ice cream trucks roll by, where cyclists and joggers take advantage of river paths and foodies feast at new restaurants that pop up every year. Seeing that you can get much better space in a newer building with better amenities for a whole lot less money and still be 15 minutes from midtown, the secret is becoming the standard. This wonderfully welcoming and incredibly priced 2BD in a contemporary, renovated building on Magaw Place offers all the details you desire to live lavishly. Justin DiGiulio (Jul 2014)
