On Thursday, May 23rd, CORE Madison Avenue’s second “Walking Tour” gave agents the opportunity to gain a deeper insight of their surrounding neighborhood. Since opening its doors last month, the Madison Avenue agents remain committed to staying current on the intricacies of nearby buildings and their histories. Already well in-tuned with the Upper East Side, this walking tour took agents back to Park Avenue, where, once again, each of them were assigned to a new building to become familiar with the purpose to educate one another along their route.
“As the number one mid-sized firm in Manhattan, we are able to go out on the streets and learn,” said Reba Miller, the Director of Sales of CORE Madison Avenue. “This is what sets CORE apart from larger firms which don’t have the ability to do things like this.”
Participating agents included Lee Frankel, Romina Frecha, Blu Kokin, Keren Ringler, Stephen Gallagher, Jarrod Randolph and Alison Abovsky who explored buildings including 565 Park, 625 Park and 710 Park. One interesting trend that appeared throughout the tour was that famed 20th century architect, J.E.R. Carpenter, designed six out of the ten buildings showcased.
An informational recap at the end of the tour proved that the agents gained a great deal of knowledge from one another. “There’s never a limit to education, and CORE agents need to make sure they understand the history and real estate market in order to stay current, relevant and familiar,” noted Reba.
Check out some additional photos taken throughout the tour below.

On Wednesday, May 22nd, 45 members of the Mt. Sinai Hospital community gathered in One Museum Mile’s fifth floor dining room and lounge to honor Dr. Joanne Stone and Dr. Keith Eddleman, co-authors of My Pregnancy & Baby and Pregnancy for Dummies. The luncheon, hosted by CORE and SCENE Magazine, and catered by Juliet Masters Events, perfectly depicted the way One Museum Mile residents can make use of this wonderful amenity space.
Located directly across from Central Park at 1280 Fifth Avenue, One Museum Mile has recently made headlines in City Biz List and Curbed for executing 25 new sales in the past three months. With 70 percent of the building now closed and in contract, One Museum Mile has also set a record for the highest price-per-square-foot ever achieved in the neighborhood.
Always the gracious hosts, One Museum Mile’s sales team members, Natalie Rakowski, Parul Brahmbhatt, and John Harrison were present to welcome guests and join in on the celebration. According to Sales Director, Tom Postilio, and on behalf of the sales team, “We felt that reaching out to the Mt. Sinai community of physicians was important due to the hospital’s presence within the neighborhood. We already have several high-profile Mt. Sinai doctors living at One Museum Mile and we wanted to introduce the project to a group already well aware of the charms and value of Upper Carnegie Hill.”
Photos from the event are below. For further information on this luxury development and its residences, visit onemuseummile.com or contact the sales office at (212) 996-1280.
