    An interesting place but I don’t think I could stand the racket from FDR Drive (granted this is NYC, so if I wanted peace & quiet I’d look elsewhere). Personally I’d much rather have a townhouse on the Upper East Side.

    Eh, nice history to it.

    Unique location. Very rare for a townhouse to have such a great view.

    I love this place. The history is interesting, but the house itself is beautiful. I even like the interior as-is. A friend used to live on 51st near 1st and the area is a great place to live. I’d actually prefer a townhouse in the Village, but I’d take this. As for the price, I can’t figure out what makes it worth more than four times what was paid for it only four year ago.

      The reason it’s worth soooooooo much, is the fact that the owner is insane.


    The ask is psychotic…but then again they’re probably playing to new money Russian & Chinese buyers with it.The place is nice enough…but those herringbone floors get ripped out the minute I get the keys.(in theory) I wonder…is that spot where the street level columns are a parking garage? I do get private parking for my 48m…right?

    Gorgeous home and I love this neighborhood. It looks like there are some awesome patios with some breathtaking river views – too bad the listing didn’t feature those more prominently.
