Historic Harlem Townhouse Sells; The Rental Market Is Tight

New, 3 comments

HARLEM—The townhouse at 16 West 123rd Street in the Mount Morris Historic District has sold for $2.2 million, a full $200,000 over its ask. A tipster alerts us that the house was shown 24 times over eight days, and received nine offers, eight of which were all cash. The home will be converted into a one- or two-family residence.
