☞ DWELL: Langston Hughes House Not Sold
A newspaper article reported that a bid was accepted for Langston Hughes' old Harlem home on 20 East 127th Street about a year ago but that deal appears to have fallen through. We had assumed the historic brownstone finally sold when the listing was pulled by Sotheby's site in early November 2012 but checking on records, it is now clear that no sale was at hand in the past year. The 20-foot-wide home just east of 5th Avenue had been on the market for the asking of $1 million but its SRO status and overall condition might have complicated things for interested buyers. Anyone with additional information on what happened?
