Townhouses facing public housing are a tough sell but probably afford a better discount for the right buyer. Number 276 West 127th Street (between FDB/8th and ACP/7th) is a 17 foot wide SRO brownstone that went up on the market in March of this year for $695K and has since been reduced to $499K as of July. Since early October, the fixer-upper has entered contract. The property that is part of a half dozen remaining brownstones on the block probably needs a complete overhaul and some of its neighbors are even in worst shape. On the plus side, the A,B,C,D express at 125th is only a couple of blocks away.
