Imagine living luxury style in a national historic landmark in New York City. The Austin Nichols House is such a place, built in 1915 for the Austin, Nichols & Co, at that time the city’s largest grocer and later the distributor of Wild Turkey Bourbon, that’s where we know them from. This historic landmark is located on the Hudson River waterfront at the epicenter of Brooklyn’s most popular neighborhood with all the café’s, restaurants, bars, art venues, boutiques you would like to have in your direct neighborhood and well-known retailers like Whole Foods, Equinox and Brooklyn’s first Apple store.
