DWELL: 4 HAMILTON TERRACE TOWNHOUSE


Harlem Bespoke: Number 4 Hamilton Terrace went up on the market in January for $2.6 million and has since been reduced significantly to $1.8 $1.75 million.  The landmark fixer upper is within the very charming Hamilton Hamilton Heights historic District in the Heights and the landmark home has quite a few original details within.  With that said, this reported single-family home by 144th Street is definitely a major fixer upper but has a lot of original details within.  On a side note, developers looking to upgrade to an HVAC system might want to take note of the original decorative vents that are already in place since these look more accurate in a period home an can easily be replicated.  More photos and contact information can be found on the broker site: LINK

ARCHITECTURE: 1674 LEXINGTON AVENUE



Harlem Bespoke: One of the few local designated official landmarks in East Harlem can be found at the school building on 1674 Lexington Avenue by East 105th Street.  The city-owned address was completed back in the late 1800s, and recently went through a round of restoration.  Now called the Julia De Burgos Cultural Arts Center since 1989, the former PS 72 also includes the Taller Boricua gallery along with theater space inside.  Everything has been pretty quiet as of late because of the pandemic but hopefully the space will be open to the public by end of year.  Check out an archival photo of the historic school in our past post: LINK

SHOP: CATCH 22 ARRIVING ON 116TH STREET



Harlem Bespoke:  The former Make My Cake commercial space at the corner of 116th and St. Nicholas Avenue is apparently going through another transformation.  A tip mentioned that active construction was currently happening at the the distinct storefront that was briefly a lounge in the past year.  Casual seafood looks to be a current uptown trend now but this particular restaurant just might be a sister to another establishment further north since the color and lettering for the signage looks exactly the same: LINK
