Amy Schumer’s Upper West Side penthouse gets a price chop, Keith Olbermann’s former Trump Palace penthouse is back on the market after recently being sold, a historic townhouse owned by “Twas the Night Before Christmas” author Clement Clarke Moore debuts on the market, and more.
↑Buyer of Keith Olbermann’s Trump Palace condo already wants out: When political commentator Keith Olbermann listed his 1,750-square-foot two-bedroom apartment within Trump Palace, he made sure that his reasons for selling were loud and clear. “I can’t stand to live in a Trump building anymore,” he declared. The apartment was picked up by a LLC named Emerita Associated USA but now, after about a month, they too are looking to rid themselves of the home, this time for the asking price of $3.9 million.
↑Idyllic Queens mansion with World’s Fair ties wants $2.3M: Designed by architect Angelo Paretta—who also did the Fulton Street Fish Market, among other projects—it’s hard to know quite where to start the property’s many vintage charms, but notable highlights include stained glass windows, decorate hardwood floors, and “wood details taken from the English Pavilion of the 1939 World’s Fair.” That is cool.
↑Amy Schumer still seeks to unload charming Upper West Side penthouse: Unlike its humorous owner, the place is pretty unanimated and features just slight tones of character that include two-wood burning fireplaces, built-in bookshelves, a clawfoot tub, and a large modern kitchen.
↑Unpretentious 19th-century Upper West Side townhouse seeks $6M: Described as “modern classic,” the home dates back to 1884 when, per its listing, it was designed by architect J.E. Terhune. While its facade continues to uphold its Neo-Grec style, the interiors have been given updates that combine its original detail with modern-day conveniences.
↑Palatial Rockaway Park home steps from the beach wants $3.3M: The extravagant home at 180 Beach 147th Street in Rockaway Park boasts a semi-circular, planted entrance leading up to an entryway with four huge Corinthian columns—and that’s just the beginning.
↑Funky Tribeca pad gets a staid makeover, returns for $10.25M: Where last we left it, the apartment was dripping with ridiculous ornate finishes, from the translucent octopod chandeliers over the dining room to the over-the-top fantasy children’s room (hot pink carpet, hot pink walls). Since then, it appears the seventh-floor Tribeca home has had a bit of a makeover, trading in its old aesthetic — let us call it “fanciful madness” — for something hyper-contemporary, with geometric fixtures.
↑Midwood condos in a former rental building ask from $1M: Back in 2014, Time Equities bought a rental property on Avenue P in Midwood for $27 million, with the intent of turning the building’s 33 units into condos. Now, two years later, the conversion process is close to being complete and a few units have hit the market, starting at (precisely) $1,013,240.
↑Luxe Chelsea condo sneaks onto the market with $11M maisonette: The 5,644-square-foot apartment is asking $10.995 million, or $1,948 per square foot. The listing price falls towards the more expensive side of the development’s offerings, which will include condos asking from $5.5 million and duplexes asking from $17.8 million.
↑Historic Chelsea townhouse, available for first time in 30 years, wants $9.9M: The historic Federal-style townhouse on one of Chelsea’s “most coveted landmark streets” comes with a literary pedigree: the home was once part of the estate of biblical scholar Clement Clarke Moore, best known for having written “A Visit From St. Nicholas,” a.k.a. “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” The current asking price for the seven-bedroom, four-bathroom residence is $9.875 million.
