☞ DWELL: 64 West 119th Street in Contract

Another landmark house on the block of West 119th Street, between Lenox and 5th Avenue, has recently gone into contract in the past couple of weeks.  There are quite a few SRO buildings in this part of the Mount Morris Park Historic District but it looks like this 17 foot wide brownstone is a legal 3-family used as a 1-family house. First on the market a year ago for $1.7 million, there has been quite a few price cuts until the current $1.49 million asking finally achieved an accepted offer. The 4 bedroom, 3.5 bath, 3,635 square foot townhouse looks like it's in pretty good shape but the finishes seem more on the moderate end.  As discussed in the past, a lot of the houses are landmarked in this part of town but the block is on the shabby side. Neverthless, one of the best independent art galleries in Harlem is located across the street and a better quality pizza parlor is set to open at the end of the block in the next coming months. Did anyone see this one?
