It seems that every media outlet’s real estate section has been consistent with covering multi, multi-million dollar properties lately. Continuing that trend is the New York Post, which launched their new luxury section, Alexa yesterday. This finely curated broadsheet “showcas[es] the most exclusive real estate for sale in and around the city.” CORE Managing Director, Emily Beare, is not unfamiliar with the world of ultra-high-end properties so it’s no surprise she was interviewed for her listing at 15 Central Park West. Additionally, the floor plans for the home were featured in a separate story with in the publication. Although we already released the floor plan to this amazing combination unit on the CORE Blog, the New York Post took there coverage a step further and included highlights from each room. See their detailed floor plan below complete with insider tips.

Now one of the most desirable neighborhoods in New York City, in the late 19th to mid-20th centuries, the Village was once a well-known artists’ haven, bohemian capital and the East Coast birthplace of the Beat movement. Our new 1-bedroom on Bleecker truly captures the sensibilities that made this neighborhood such a cultural and artistic melting pot: the 11-foot ceilings, large windows and original columns tell a story of the building’s history while details like the purple kitchen cabinetry, unique mosaic tile back splash and colorful accent walls add an artistic aesthetic to this truly one-of-a-kind home.

New Yorkers are all too familiar with the lack of closet space in Manhattan apartments. CORE’s Michael Graves commented on the history of the “generally overlooked” amenity. Luckily the trend seems to be leading architects and interior designers to craft residences with an emphasis on smart storage options.
Set against a crisp, fall sky, this photo demonstrates an example of the old-versus-new architecture which makes New York City a design masterpiece. Once the world’s tallest building for a mere 11 months, before being ousted by the likes of the Empire State Building, the World Trade Center, the Bank of America Tower, and now, One World Trade Center, The Chrysler Building is still one of our favorites in New York City and remains a stunning example of classic Art Deco architecture.
