Julia Boland, broker, Corcoran:
“East Harlem is an increasingly popular neighborhood that is now bridging the new East Harlem rezoning and the historically luxe amenities and services of Carnegie Hill. Even now, new restaurants, cafes, stores, upgraded shops, a newly renovated subway stop [103rd Street], an increasingly vibrant art-slash-gallery scene and new real estate developments and conversions are inspiring a creative energy, like that found in exciting and developing neighborhoods of Brooklyn.
“1399 Park, at 104th Street and Park, is a new development that is breaking neighborhood price records and giving a new level of luxury for the neighborhood. It will really be setting a new barometer in pricing for East Harlem—prospective buyers can buy one of the nicest units in the building, a duplex penthouse with private outdoor space, for $1,283 a square foot.”
