Event: A townhouse preview at 18 East 73rd Street
In the house: Photographer Evan Joseph, signing copies of his new book
Dress code: Suits and other usual broker wear
Menu: We spotted a few nibbles on the coffee table, but mostly it was drinks. Less chance of grubby hands on the furniture that way.
The Skinny: This townhouse has been on the market since October, but it recently had its price chopped from $24 million to $22.8 million. The 1866 home was later altered by architect William Lawrence Bottomley, and the present-day feel is very old world. We only wandered through the owners' triplex, stumbling on one of the owners himself in a downstairs room. (The owners' dog almost followed us home.) The upper floors are still occupied by tenants, but as broker Corinne Pulitzer explained, they're on month-to-month leases, so clearing out the place shouldn't be too much of a hassle for hopeful single-family mansion creators.
