It’s a new year, but let’s not forget about the old, because in New York City, a dash of the past mixed with the present can go a long way. For example, when it comes to prestige in real estate, nothing beats a Candela classic. The Windsor Park is just that, a prewar Rosario Candela-designed brown-brick beauty converted to condominiums. It may hark back to another era, but there’s a contemporary feel in this building as well, thanks to renovations designed by Gwathmey Siegel & Associates, the prestigious firm that has worked on the Guggenheim Museum and Yale’s Art and Architecture Building, among many others. This one-bedroom apartment, priced well under $1 million, is like getting your foot in the door of two distinct architectural styles at once. Perfect for those with a resolution to try new things.

“Selling New York” is back for its fourth season, and if the first episode is any indication of what’s to come, this is sure to be one of the most exciting seasons yet. In this episode, entitled “Making It Personal,” CORE agent and “SNY” favorite, Tom Postilio, is tasked to sell an apartment in his own building, Windsor Park. As always, the stakes are high, but this time the pressure is hitting a little too close to home, especially when potential buyers show little interest in living at Windsor Park. Never one to back down from a challenge, Tom—with the help of a cookie or two—found a buyer who, like him, fell in love with Windsor Park.
