Dating back to the late 1800s, The Piano Factory building is a loft-conversion on the site of the former Wessell, Nickel & Gross Company, a piano works and soundboard factory. Today, the building is a well-established, self-managed co-op with very low monthlies, allowing pets, pied- -terres and subletting. At the entry, a Romanesque Revival archway leads you to the building's iconic European style courtyard, at once leafy and beautifully industrial. Originally serving as the factory's storage yard, today the brick-lined outdoor spaces are punctuated by striking original steel catwalks, leafy plantings and inviting seating areas. The Piano Factory complex has frequently been used for movie and television filming because of its photogenic beauty.
