Lowdown: Unfortunately, we think this development is named for its Manhattan Valley/Columbia University surroundings, and not for the discount CD wholesaler that was so integral to our youth. We're looking at a new construction here, meant to "mesh with the historic upper westside neighborhood." The modern spin on pre-war involves a brick facade and a rear glass wall overlooking a garden. A tipster claims that the first-floor duplex might already be sold, which wouldn't be a surprise becau?holy shit is someone getting raped in that rendering?!
