Harlem's Beacon Towers Almost Effective, Shout-Out for an UWSer

New, 7 comments

HARLEM?Central Harlem's Beacon Towers up on West 138th Street caught our attention with the free money giveaway earlier this year, but forget the gimmicks, how's business? According to building reps, the eight-story building is over 60% in contract and the sponsor just filed to declare the offering plan effective. Huzzah! There are 16 remaining units in the middle-income/market-rate co-op. Pricing info here. [CurbedWire Inbox]

UPPER WEST SIDE?While we're not in the obits business, we do love a) eccentric New York characters and b) updates on 33 West 67th Street. So here's a message from Bellmarc's Ricardo Nelson: "While dealing with a separate issue within the building at 33 West 67th Street, I had the distinct pleasure of meeting Mary Brown. Mary died two weeks ago after 98 years of life. She was vivacious, strong-willed and an all around force to be reckoned with. Mary told me she moved in the building at the height if the bohemian era of the block, which is now known as a "Historic Artist Colony District" where the likes of Duchamp and Picasso came to work, play and sometimes even lived. She was the last artist left in that building and possibly that block, so give a shout-out to the artist Mary Brown and the end of an era." Mary, we're pouring one out for you. [CurbedWire Inbox]
