Asking $995,000, the apartment has an open and sunny layout, complete with a contemporary kitchen and an office alcove.

Ralph Lauren exec lists Upper West Side co-op full of industrial-chic style for $3.5M

Posted by admin on

Photo credit: Evan Joseph For the past 30 years, John Wrazej has been an executive at Ralph Lauren, and for just as long, he’s lived at this four-bedroom co-op on the Upper West Side. The home at 107 West 82nd Street has all the fashionable flair you’d expect, with tons of industrial details, lots of plaid fabric, and an overall masculine-yet-comfortable vibe. John said he and his wife, Patti Trainor-Wrazej, approached their home with the same sensibility as the Ralph Lauren brand–“like wearing a tuxedo jacket with jeans and a pair of cowboy boots.” The couple has now decided to sell, listing the apartment for $3,495,000....

This gorgeous $1.1M Upper East Side co-op was once the office of Marilyn Monroe’s psychiatrist

Posted by admin on

Photos courtesy of Compass Marilyn Monroe may not have been very open at the time about her mental health struggles, but they’ve since been documented through diary entries and letters she’d written. As Vanity Fair noted, in the mid-1950s, Monroe saw a psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Hohenberg, on the recommendation of her acting coach Lee Strasburg. Dr. Hohenberg, whom she visited up to five times a week, operated out of a first-floor office at 155 East 93rd Street. This exact Carnegie Hill apartment, now a residential co-op unit, has just hit the market for $1,125,000. It has lovely pre-war details, lots of closet space, and a nicely modernized...

The storage is really unbelievable; even...

Rustic Sunset Park one-bedroom is just right for $420,000

Posted by admin on

Credit: Rayon Richards/VHT, courtesy The Corcoran Group It’s not all the time that you find an actual one-bedroom for under $500,000, but this Sunset Park co-op is priced well below that and is quite charming to boot. Reclaimed wood shelving and a country-chic kitchen add to the rustic feel already in place from the exposed brick wall and wood ceiling beams. At 683 41st Street, the location is great too; it’s directly across from Sunset Park, just a couple blocks from Greenwood Cemetery, and a quick walk to the D train at 9th Avenue and the N, R trains at 45th...
