☞ DWELL: 89 West 119th Street in Contract

One of the last SRO in the Mount Morris Park Historic District's West 119th Street nabe is currently in contract as of November.  The 18 foot wide SRO building was apparently occupied when it was placed on the market last February at the asking price of $799K and the brownstone didn't move until several price cuts later landed the building at 739K.  This section of West 119th has a lot of landmark houses but many of them have seen better days.  There's quite a few buildings on the immediate block that just recently sold or went into contract so things might look a little different in the next year or so.  We especially like this one for the original bathroom details which could be salvageable if someone had the right knowhow.

  1. The generous bathroom has a lot of potential but needs a lot of work, I’m not sure of the purpose of the arched paneled mirror alcove, looks like a seat, does anyone know?
