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.
It took about a year for the Central Harlem townhouse at 241 West 132nd Street to make any movement but the 3-family home finally went into contract last month. At 16 foot wide, the townhouse is on the narrow side but the building is apparently fully rented out with market rate tenants. Reportedly the owner's duplex will be available some times in 2011 so the timing looks right on this one. Pricing originally was set at $1.55 million but that asking eventually reduced down to $1.42 million by Summer 2010. As the interior photos shows, the infrastructure has been recently upgraded but there's not too much detail inside. Better amenities are sparse on the FDB/8th and ACP/7th Avenue sides surrounding this block but subways are less than a 10 minute walk in either direction.
