Parsons School of Design alumnus with a BFA in fashion, who has worked in the menswear industry for several years. Past lives have been in the East Village and Lower East Side of Manhattan; more recently transplanted to Harlem. Currently living in a 1907 "French flat," an Edwardian era middle-class apartment.
The set of 2 white adjacent 3-story townhouses at 2282 ACP/7th Avenue and 134th Street has had a major price reduction recently but will the new asking price of $2.1 million make sense for a couple of buildings that need major renovations? With a combined total of 36 feet in width (total 5,344 square foot), the two townhouse are basically 18 foot wide each and there's only two floors of living space because the ground floor is currently used as a funeral parlor. This area of Central Harlem has started to develop in the past years but there's not so much going on that it feels like there's a lot of amenities to be had. That said, the express 2,3 train is only a block away on the east side and the B, C trains are about 3 blocks west. A million for each of the houses which need a lot of work still seems a tad bit high in our opinion so maybe 2011 will bring down prices even more?
