DWELL: 470 WEST 143RD STREET TOWNHOUSE


Harlem Bespoke:  One of the more ambitious townhouses to arrive on the market this summer is located in the historic district of Hamilton Heights and currently asking for $4.9 million.  Number 470 West 143rd Street by Amsterdam Avenue actually was on the market last year for $5.8 million until June 2019 and now has returned with almost a million discount.  Everything has been gut renovated with contemporary finishes and there is even a jacuzzi out back for those who have such amenities on their check list.  Express trains at 145th Street are only a short walk aways along with many great commercial options in the neighborhood.  More details, photos and contact information can be found on the broker site: LINK

VIRTUAL CINEMA: PAUL ROBESON: HERE I STAND

Paul Robeson: Here I Stand streaming via Maysles Cinema from September 25th to October 1st.  A perfect meeting of subject—singer, actor, activist, lawyer, humanitarian Paul Robeson, and filmmaker—writer, organizer, magazine editor, historian St. Clair Bourne, Paul Robeson: Here I Stand is an epic of the biographical documentary. Bourne’s directing and producing career was dedicated to understanding and portraying people and subjects ignored by mainstream media, and his study of Robeson is a clear-eyed analysis of an oft-misunderstood giant of the 20th century. A master class in the synthesis of archival research and modern documentary filmmaking, and a rightful classic of the form.  More details and FREE online viewing can be found at the Maysles Cinema site: LINK
