The new year is here, marking the beginning of another 365 days of glorious and laughably unattainable New York City real estate listings. So far this year, Brooklyn’s priciest listing—the $40 million Low Mansion—revealed that it’s also being pedaled as several rentals asking upwards of $4,500/month, a few tiny Prospect Heights apartments availed themselves for $350,000 a pop, and now, a floor-through Tribeca apartment enters the 2017 listings mix.
The apartment at 173 Duane Street last sold in 2008 for $3.85 million and has returned to the market seeking over twice as much. The 4,200-square-foot co-op with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a large in-home art studio sectioned off by its current owner, artist Merrill Steiger, is on the market for $7.95 million.
The apartment gets a good amount of light from its southern exposure, and has an updated kitchen and is chock-full of closet space. The bathrooms have also been recently updated.
