DWELL: 466 WEST 144TH STREET IN CONTRACT


Harlem Bespoke:  One of the magnificent townhouses by Convent Avenue's historic district was up on the market for $4 million in June 2018 but has been reduced a couple of times to $3.6 million by Spring 2019 and now has finally gone into conract. This historic home is one of our favorites to be found uptown and is somewhat of deal in the current market especially after all of the price cuts.  As previously mentioned, Number 466 West 144th Street is an impressive 21 foot-wide and retains an extraordinary amount of restored original details. Everything appears to be in perfect spectacular condition and the interior upgrades for the single-family looks expensive but also fit in with the original aesthetics.  Some of the highest-selling brownstones in Harlem are from the surrounding blocks and this townhouse is definitely one to watch.  More photos and contact information on Streeteasy: LINK

ARCHITECTURE: 201 EAST 125TH STREET REVEALED

Harlem Bespoke:  We noticed that the entire block of East 125th Street on the north side between 2nd and 3rd Avenue had been demolished earlier this year but what would arrived remained a mystery until recently.  New plywood signs are now up on the site with a dramatic rendering of the final mix-use building that will take up an acre of land.

REMEMBER: DECADE OF FIRE AT MAYSLES CINEMA

Friday, July 12th, 7:30PM - Tuesday, July 16th, 10:30PM, Decade of Fire, at Maysles Cinema, 343 Lenox Avenue by 127th Street.  In the 1970s, the Bronx was on fire. Abandoned by city government, nearly a half-million people were displaced as their close-knit, multi-ethnic neighborhood burned, reducing the community to rubble. While insidious government policies caused the devastation, Black and Puerto Rican residents bore the blame. In this story of hope and resistance, Bronx-born Vivian Vázquez Irizarry exposes the truth about the borough’s untold history and reveals how her embattled and maligned community chose to resist, remain and rebuild.  More details and online tickets at the Maysles site: LINK
