Back during when the recession hit in 2009, the majestic Bailey Mansion at 150th and St. Nicholas sold extremely below asking price at $1.4 million and the new owners had an extraordinary opportunity at hand.  Offered originally for $10 million during the height of market, the buyers really saw a deal when the recession hit and paid all cash for the property that had been more recently used as a funeral home.  There was a lot to be done but with an 80 percent savings, the new owners could manage an accurate restoration.

A New Jersey specialist was chosen for the landmark building of Barnum & Bailey fame and the company Short Slate now has these detailed photos published on their website.  A dramatic view of the the conical turret roof shows the complexity of the work at hand and there are even some great images of the stained glass within.  For more photos and details on Short Slate, check out their official website: LINK
