Most CORE clients (and viewers of “Selling New York“) are familiar with our storefront office at 127 Seventh Avenue in Chelsea, but many have never seen our Flatiron District headquarters at 104 Fith Avenue, which opened last year. So for our pre-Labor Day Photo of the Week, we thought we’d offer this glimpse of where many CORE agents and executives actually do their labor. What can we say? We’re suckers for a good tie-in. The 5th Ave. office is a bit more private than than the glassy storefront in Chelsea, but no less thought out when it comes to modern interior design. Like our new digs?

“Less Than $1M For a Pre-Civil War House in Fort Greene”
Doug Bowen’s and Win Brown’s listing for a historic townhouse at 141 Clermont Avenue in Fort Greene, Brooklyn, caught the eye of real estate blog Curbed, which remarked: “It’s currently configured as two one-bedroom apartments (squeezed into 1,324 square feet!) but would be easy enough to renovate into a single-family residence. Side bonus: the lot is 25′x100′ and it’s got a driveway.” This is the same Fort Greene charmer that was featured in CORE’s Three of a Kind last week.
