“It’s an honor to be a client’s broker for life,” Citi Habitats agent Jessica Kaufman said .
Kaufman recently sold 541 East 72nd Street, #5B, a two-bedroom, two-bath co-op for the seller she’d previously sold it to.
The unit (pictured top) stands out for its living room with a fireplace and views of the East River.
It has Venetian plastered walls, renovated bathrooms, and an in-unit washer/dryer. The final closing price was $1,060,000.
The apartment is located in “The Black & Whites” – a townhouse-style building that was built in 1894. Well-known for its unique red lacquer exterior doors and two-tone exterior, the “B & W’s” was home to the author and actor George Plimpton, until his death in 2003.
“His place was known as a party pad and he frequently hosted famous guests like Dick Cavett, Norman Mailer, Muhammad Ali, and Andy Warhol. You can truly sense the history all around you,” said Kaufman.
The buyers, represented by Jennifer Taylor of Taylor Real Estate Group, work at the hospital one block away and love the river views. Asking price: $1,099,000, CC: $2,347.13. Time on market: 33 weeks.
