Only a few weeks after CORE Madison Avenue opened its doors, agents at the new location have wasted no time learning even more about their surroundings on the Upper East Side. In order to expand on their first-hand knowledge of residential buildings in the area, several agents joined the new “Walking Tour” initiative spearheaded by Madison Avenue’s Director of Sales, Reba Miller. In preparation for the tour, agents were designated to a specific building and asked to become an expert on the property with the purpose of presenting their findings to the group. (more…)

The Cammeyer is one of our favorite buildings since it straddles the border of Flatiron and Chelsea, two of downtown’s most dynamic neighborhoods. And this penthouse in the pre-war loft building (which was once the world’s biggest shoe store) is one of its crown jewels. Open space, sun-drenched interiors and top-of-the-line finishes?
