Wall Street Journal: A (Museum) Mile in Their Shoes

Last week, One Museum Mile was featured in The Wall Street Journal, and CORE broker Tom Postilio talks about one couple’s purchase in the building. Chronicling their move from London to New York City in 2012, the piece documents the evolution along this stretch of upper Fifth Avenue.  The Robert A.M. Stern designed building offers several sought-after amenities including a dining/conference room, a living room, teen hangout, fitness room and children’s play area. According to the couple, after initially struggling to navigate the tough Manhattan market, their home “…feels like an oasis in the city.” As one of the first new developments of its kind in the area, One Museum Mile’s world-class address, sweeping views and design have made it a distinct presence along Central Park.

Celebrating a CORE Milestone

OMM Recap

On Monday night, Brickman and CORE hosted an intimate event for colleagues and friends at Minton’s jazz club in Harlem to celebrate the latest milestone at One Museum Mile. Earlier this month, the Upper Carnegie Hill new development property announced that 100% of units were closed or in contract, with CORE managing the sales and marketing efforts for the building. “We are very pleased with the success of One Museum Mile,” says Tom Postilio, Director of Sales for the building. “This neighborhood is not emerging – it is blossoming. And, buyers have recognized the building’s overall value and exceptional quality of the amenities, design and finishes, as well as its prestigious Fifth Avenue location with sweeping Central Park vistas.” Today’s photo captures a moment during the night’s festivities, which offered lively conversation, delicious food and live jazz.

What’s New: Tastefully Tribeca

Where: 37 Harrison Street
Size: 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms
Asking: $3,750,000
Listed by: Tom Postilio and Mickey Conlon

Available for the first time in over 40 years, this architecturally rich and rare house at 37 Harrison Street (originally 327 Washington Street) retains a remarkable abundance of its original detail. Currently configured with a 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom layout, this 21-foot wide structure stretches over three sun-drenched floors, plus an English basement with exposed stone walls, front and rear entrances, and 13′ 6″ ceilings. Constructed in brick in a Flemish bond pattern, this corner house enjoys a craftsman-like attention to detail and scale and as one of the city’s finest extant examples of the Federal Style. It features six wood-burning fireplaces, soaring ceilings with exposed beams and original arched dormers. Its private garden adjoins an enclave of similarly designed houses connected by their historical pedigree and unlikely survival. Linked by a cobblestone street that once faced the river, the entire row was converted for warehouse use in the 19th century as the commercial activities of the Washington Market expanded northward, leaving no more than a handful of the original townhouses.

Built in 1828 and landmarked in 1969, the Wilson Hunt House is one of a group of nine Federal houses whose scale and profile exist nowhere else in New York City. Located on a site that was once the well-known farm of Annetje Jans, to whom it was granted in 1636 by Dutch Director General, Van Twiller, the area surrounding the house has evolved a bit over the last several centuries. Its farms and breweries long gone, the quaint neighborhood now offers access to some of the city’s finest shops, restaurants, and 21st century conveniences.
