Inside Langston Hughes' East 127th Harlem Brownstone

New, 4 comments

It's not exactly new to market, but the Harlem rowhouse at 20 East 127th Street—home to author Langston Hughes from 1948 through 1967—piques our interest today because author David Freeland recently blogged his experience touring the place about a week back. Excerpt: "The house, in need of some restoration but otherwise intact, did not disappoint. One of the most enchanting design features is an original floor-to-ceiling mirror, placed between the front windows on the 127th Street side." Click through for more from Freeland, and also do check the photos on the two separate listings as well.

Meantime, to say this place is in need of some restoration is a bit understated—it's going to take some work to get this place shining again. Current asking is $1.2 million, which sounds pricey; neighborhood residents, thoughts on what price might get this off the market?
