This past Tuesday, CORE’s Sid Whelan was a guest on “Good Morning New York, Real Estate” with Vince Rocco discussing whether or not buyers should hire a lawyer during the purchasing process. While there is no legal requirement to hire a lawyer, some agents believe it’s best for their buyer to have one on hand. Sid also covered Harlem’s real estate market with CORE’s Matthew Cohen during the show. Click the link below to hear what Sid has to say regarding both topics.

Dwell Diaries provides a peek at a “day-in-the-life” in one of CORE’s exclusive listings. From master suites to neighborhood hotspots, our diary doesn’t spare a detail!
Waking up at 455 Central Park West, 18C is nothing short of perfection. A morning in this white-glove condominium begins as you’re awoken by sunlight pouring in through the windows. Why not extend this blissful wake-up by indulging in a spa-like bath with sweeping Central Park views directly from the soaking tub and glass shower? After a relaxing bath, it’s time to enjoy a coffee and bagel from one of the best bagel joints in New York, Absolute Bagels, located right around the corner. Who can resist this morning ritual?
One of the best parts about living in this Upper West Side residence is getting to live the best of both worlds. While it’s located in a quiet residential area away from the hustle and bustle, you are still close to every convenience. For example, Columbus Square is just a short walk away, providing one-stop shopping for those Sunday morning errands. Once the errands are completed, head across the street to the Great Hill, the most lovely spot in Central Park for picnics and ‘Great Jazz on the Great Hill’. Once the music comes to a close, walk down to The Pool, an area surrounded by grassy banks and weeping willows. The Pool flows into the Ravine, which feels like a forest hidden from the Manhattan skyline.
After a fun day of activities and relaxation in the park, enjoy a delicious Italian meal from Macchina followed by a fantastic dessert from Silver Moon Bakery. When it’s time to return home to 455 Central Park West, 18C invite some friends over and take advantage of the open living room layout, grand dining room and spacious kitchen, all making the home the ideal place for entertaining. A day-in-the-life at 455 Central Park West, 18C will truly make you feel like you are living in a castle by the park.

Welcome to CORE 10, an off-the-cuff interview series with prominent CORE figures. Read on to learn more about this week’s guest, broker Armen Meschian!
- Who is the living person you most admire? I would lie if I didn’t say my father. An accomplished architect and a musician with tremendous legacy.
- Who is the most interesting New Yorker you know? I am truly stumped by this question. I know many and from all walks of life.
- What is your earliest New York memory? Looking at the New York City skyline from the New Jersey side of the Hudson upon arriving to the United States as a 15-year-old immigrant. Fear, excitement, hope, dreams: it was a barrage of feelings at the foot of a new beginning in this country.
- What is the best advice you’ve ever received? Whatever job you do, have a clear definition of how you personally add value in your field.
- What do you consider your greatest achievement so far? Becoming a father. It’s hard to top that one.
- What are your three most treasured possessions? My three main guitars.
- Name a movie, book or work of art that changed your life. I was obsessed with Led Zeppelin when I was in high school, particularly Physical Graffiti, so much so that I turned down an art scholarship to pursue music instead. Every decision or move in life I have made since then, including coming to New York City and how I came into real estate, has been affected by that one crossroad.
- What’s your greatest extravagance? Travel.
- What’s your secret talent? I am a regularly performing guitarist/singer/songwriter here in New York City.
- Which words or phrases do you most overuse? The word “merit” is often on my tongue. I use it frequently and aspire to have as much of it as possible.
