NYC Real Estate with History

New York Spaces // Jun 17, 2015

New York City is full of real estate, some with a very unique history.


1 Centre Market Place: Currently listed for $7,500,000, this 18-foot wide townhouse was built in 1900. Back in the 1800s, Centre Market Place was situated at the top of a high hill and for more than 100 years, was the knife’s edge of weather, corruption, poverty and crime. The townhome neighbors Onieal’s restaurant that once served as a speakeasy during the Prohibition. Currently, the townhome is beautifully renovated, holding magnificent views of the Old Police Headquarters.


344 West 11th Street, 4W: Circa the early 1900’s, this historic walk-up is currently listed for $1,250,000. Situated in a coveted ‘backhouse’, this listing is part of a charming five-building cooperative that surrounds a very special interior ‘secret garden’ a serene, furnished courtyard (image below).


374 Broome Street, PHS: Currently listed for $8,995,000 this 3-bedroom, 3-bath penthouse at the old Brewster Carriage House is exactly where Soho, Chinatown, Little Italy, the lower East Side and Nolita intersect. Originally built in 1856, the old Brewster & Co. carriage factory resurrected an American industry. Restored in 2010, the carriage house now houses nine units yet still embodies original detailing throughout—such as the Queen Anne lobby desk, dating back to the 1700s.
