Hi Connie,

This is a co-op - located at 200 Lexington Avenue. Co-ops have a single monthly maintenance charge which includes your portion of the co-op's taxes, your portion of the underlying mortgage on the entire building, heat, water, hot water, lawn care, snow removal and maintenance of the common areas. Your additional bills would be for the Gas & Electric you use, your telephone and any cable service you might want. For this unit, the monthly maintenance charge is $651.23
