Photo by William Weber for Curbed
Our “bipolar penthouse party” caught the attention of the New York Observer last week, and last night Curbed dropped by 303 Mercer Street in Greenwich Village to get a look inside Penthouse 605 and its neighbor, Penthouse 608, both listed for sale by CORE’s Maggie Kent and David Grossmann.
Up in #608 the menu was champagne and hors d’oeuvres, while #605 kept things a bit more casual with a beer and BBQ theme. There were other differences that caught the eye of Curbed’s William Weber:
One caters to the younger and more edgy buyer, while the other is begging for a Martha Stewart-type to take over the kitchen. One thing the two have in common: sweet staircases to their private roof decks. So which staircase wins? We photograph, you decide!
Curbed has a full photo gallery to help in the decision-making process. Check it out!

What could make a building with a 34-foot-high stainless steel daisy planted on its rooftop stand out even more? How about fire breathers, models covered in body paint and a performance by some world-famous musicians? That was the scene last month on top of 305W16, the new residential condop developed by Centaur Properties and marketed by CORE. Located on the cusp of Chelsea and the Meatpacking District, 305W16 made a splashy debut befitting these vibrant New York City neighborhoods. But enough talk. Check out the video above to get a taste of 305W16’s fun and artsy spirit, and click here to see what’s still available in the building.

Feinstein's Customer Appreciation Event
Tom Postilio’s charismatic personality and top-notch client service were on display throughout last night’s episode of Selling New York
, titled “World Trade Center,” which is why we’ve already received a lot of positive feedback from our fans. As we saw in the episode, Tom’s buyers were apprehensive about moving to the Financial District because of its proximity to the construction being completed at Ground Zero. However, Tom remained positive throughout the episode, doing anything it took to show the couple all the amazing features they could potentially miss out on by not choosing to live in this area.
Like all good stories this one had a happy ending, but what happened after the cameras stopped rolling? And what wound up on the cutting-room floor? Continue reading for some exclusive information on last night’s episode of Selling New York! Read the rest of this entry »
