Number 436 Lenox Avenue went up on the market last July for the asking price of $1.35 million and now has a contract out as of this week. This 17-foot wide, 3-famiy home located by West 132nd Street is within the commercial main strip of the avenue and the building has a retail space on the ground floor which apparently was a funeral home. There appears to be some details intact inside but it is unclear if the infrastructure has been upgraded. The block is also still on the up-and-coming side and the building next door has the top floors boarded up. Express trains are at 135th Street and some of the better shops have been opening up just a few blocks south.
