☞ DWELL: The Eubie Blake House Sold Last July

The Eubie Blake House at 236 West 138th Street (between ACP and FDB) was under contract this time last year and we just found out what the Jazz Age legend's townhouse finally went for. Priced at $2.4 million in early 2009, the asking would quickly dip to $1.9 million when it was clear the market was weakening. The 21 foot wide, landmark 2-family home on Strivers Row would finally be sold for $1.692 million. Check out the above old New York magazine clip that we had on file which tours the house.

  1. What a masterpiece !!! I hope the new owner appreciates the history within those walls and Harlem. My dream house !! I remember watching Eubie on TV when I was a kid !!
    To have a hope where these Jazz greats lived, sung or played. What a Blessing !

  2. "Jazz legends such as Billy Holiday and Ella Fitgerald used to sing on these very steps." - Broker

    I don't mean to be a skeptic here but is there any way to actually verify the broker's statement?
