☞ DWELL: 30 West 120th Sold to Samuelsson

The former home of Kareem Abdul-Jabbar at 30 West 120th Street sold for $2.5 million back in 2011, went on the market for $2.895 million in 2012 and it has now been sold to non other than celebrity chef Marcus Samuelsson: LINK. This single-family brownstone has one of the most high end, contextual renovations to be seen in Harlem and faces Marcus Garvey Park which garnered one of 2011's record sales.  At 18-foot-wide, the townhouse is not quite the golden 20-footer but is in a notable location adjacent to the Mount Morris Park Historic District. More details can be found at the broker site: LINK


  1. Fabulous home, for half of what it would cost downtown.

  2. Good to see a local entrepreneur committed to Harlem, what a wonderful home and location, and well earned.

  3. I would argue this sold for 1/3 of a similar property downtown:
    - new renovation
    - marquee block
    - directly on a great park
    - low taxes
    Show me that below 96th street and I will show you a $9 million price tag...

  4. It's fabulous, and I'm happy to see that Chef Samuelsson was the buyer.
