As far as Heal Estate goes?the trend of turning old churches into luxury condos?Harlem's 2056 Fifth Avenue (née Rhapsody on Fifth) has always been a favorite. Repped by Corcoran's Brian and Jessica Armstead, the Beaux-Arts beauty had seen better days, which the developers looked to reclaim. Mission accomplished on the outside, but what about the innards? Well, the long-planned model unit recently opened for business, and we've got some fresh photos of it above. Not bad for an old prayer palace, eh? There are currently 14 listings online, priced from $645,000 to $1,575,000 after some price cuts five weeks ago.
