My Notes

Historically, this Carriage House possesses a wonderfully creative provenance. Since 1959, it has been the home of famous fashion photographers Lillian Bassman and Paul Himmel who made many of their now iconic shots in the enormous studio. Additionally, artist Helen Frankenthaler painted in there for fifteen years. Located between Park A venue and Lexington, a rare location for a Carriage House, this 25' wide Romanesque Revival red brick horse and staff house was designed by S. C. Slocum and built in 1900 for John Boulton Simpson, the chairman of Estey Piano Company. Besides its excellent location and large garage, it features an open West facade allowing side windows, which is rare indeed for a town house, as well as 13' ceilings. Additional square footage may be added to the structure. It is currently zoned for a photography studio and residential use.  More Less

Market guide

Zillow predicts New York home values will increase 3.4% next year, compared to a 1.4% rise for New York Metro as a whole. Among New York homes, this home is valued 1684.1% more than the midpoint (median) home, and is valued 594.3% more per square foot.

Foreclosures will be a factor impacting home values in the next several years. In New York, the number of foreclosures waiting to be sold is 53.7% less than in New York Metro, and 76.2% lower than the national average. This lower local number could help New York home values rise more quickly than other regions in New York Metro.
