☞ DWELL: Harlem Brownstone Condos at 118th

The sign on 129 West 118th Street advertises for the brand new brownstone condos under way on this landmarked block in Mount Morris Park. With spacious floor-through apartments and duplexes sporting asking prices that start at $700K, it might be a good thing that these are coming up later in the year since pricing is still a bit ambitious. On the other hand, these units will be on a very exclusive block with great brownstone views on a tree-lined street in the heart of the "West Village of Harlem." At the current state, it probably won't be until November at the least for the building to be ready to show. Let's see if the interiors reach any historic proportions.

  1. Nothing beats the architecture in Manhattan. Most tourists never realize that we have tree lined streets with buildings that go way back in time. The spirit on NYC can never be duplicated.

  2. You are so right. Tour books tend to focus on skyscrapers in midtown but true New Yorkers know that the true beauty of the city is hidden in the smaller side streets of residential areas like the West Village or Harlem.
