A 17 foot wide brownstone located on the block that the famous jazz photo "A Great Day in Harlem" was taken on is in contract as of this past Spring. Nothing has closed yet on the 9-unit building located just west of Madison Avenue and apparently No. 27 East 126th Street is a fixer-upper. Check out the detailed interior after the jump.
This property reportedly is a rooming house and not an SRO and a Certificate on Non Harassment in place. Either way, it appears some of the details can be saved but the interior looks to be in pretty poor condition. The East Harlem brownstone was first up on the market at the asking price of $799K back at the end of April and would go into contract in just over a 2 week time period. There is about 3, 816 square foot of space to this building but it is unclear what the the final price will land at and the house's eventual end use.
