NEW ON THE MARKET

New York PostApril 26, 2007
Despite how it sometimes feels, not everything in Manhattan is new and glassy. In the heart of the Ladies’ Mile Historic District, named for the women who shopped there at the turn of the (last) century, Beaux Arts architecture and original facades still reign. That’s certainly the case with 141 Fifth Ave. (pictured on our cover), the conversion of the Merchants Bank of New York building, which has maintained the detailed terra cotta façade, curved corner windows and grand copper cupola of the 1897 building. The 38 homes at 21st Street range from 1,700 to 3,300 square feet and $1.6 million to $15 million. Units have solid walnut floors and freestanding Waterworks tubs. Contact: (212) 420-1415.
