It's not every day that an apartment in 19 East 72nd Street comes on the market, so when one does, even one as relatively bland as this one, it's difficult to pass up the chance to harken back to the classic 2008 Observer piece in which an anonymous broker told Max Abelson, "You wouldn't bring in a rap singer into 19 East 72nd Street—just as you wouldn't take 19 East 72nd into some rap building." Since its fairly unlikely that the notoriously "tough" co-op board has changed its ways much in only four years time, this 2BR duplex is available for $6,800,000, but probably not to any..."rappers" or, you know, anyone who might be...uh...related...to a rapper?
