DWELL: 17 EAST 128TH STREET TOWNHOUSE

One of Harlem's oldest residential homes is up for sale at 17 East 128th Street for $3.7 million.  This Civil War era single-family house built in 1864 is a prime example of what a restored wood frame building would look like if all of the details have been renovated correctly and the address is an official New York City landmark. Without any photos of the interiors, there is not much else to say about the property except that it is on a quiet residential block just east of Fifth Avenue.  More on the broker site: LINK

LISTEN: MIGRATION MUSIC AT GINNY'S SUPPER CLUB


Thursday, March 5th at 7:00 PM,  Migration Music with The Bob Stewart Double Quartet, at Ginny's Supper Club below the Red Rooster on Lenox just north of 125th Street.  Terrance McKnight Presents "Migration Music" with The Bob Stewart Double Quartet takes inspiration from painter Jacob Lawrence's Migration Series.  The evening will be hosted by Terrance McKnight, who curates the classical weekday evening music on New York's public radio station, WQXR. McKnight will present a cross-genre program of musical performances by Harlem resident Bob Stewart and his critically acclaimed Double Quartet.

Chef Marcus Samuelsson; chef Abram Bissel of The Modern and Art Food; and Dan Jackson, executive chef of the MoMa cafes, will collaborate on a multi-course menu that will explore the flavors of the Migration, as Southern food came North and was integrated into a New York kitchen culture. In addition to the evening's musical performances, Terrance will also lead a discussion about Jacob Lawrence's work between Leah Dickerman, curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum of Modern Art, musical guest Bob Stewart and chef Samuelsson.  Tickets for $95 may be purchased online for those who are interested in reserving a table: LINK

REVIVE: AFFORDABLE RESIDENTIAL AT 140TH STREET


Construction has started on a lot at 140th and FDB recently and now the rendering of the new building has been posted on the plywood.  Apparently this will be 54 units of affordable housing planned for the block just north of Strivers Row and a new supermarket will be the anchor tenant for the street level storefront.  Bespoke readers have inquired on which market will move into the commercial space but those details have yet to be made public.  For more on the Strivers Plaza story, check out New York YIMBY: LINK
