The former residence of Senator Jacob Javits and his wife Marion at 322 East 57th Street is once again on the market, asking $7.2 million. 6sqft featured the classic Sutton Place co-op–designed in 1933 by Art Deco architect Joseph Urban–when it was listed in 2017 for $5.2 million; the unit found a buyer at $4.4 million within a year. The 3,300-square-foot duplex has since undergone a thoroughly modern renovation under the direction of the current owner and Sandra Arndt of Studio AKTE. The resulting bold, contemporary design is as noteworthy as its rich history.

Located at the southernmost part of lower Manhattan–and at the center of the global financial universe–New York City’s Financial District in many ways represents New York City to the world. Encompassing the area south of City Hall Park, with the corner of Wall and Broad Streets as its center, this bustling grid of streets is also a waterfront neighborhood, surrounded by New York Harbor and the East River. As a backdrop, the towering masts of South Street Seaport’s tall ships recall the maritime history of the city’s earliest days. The business of finance is still anchored here, but as with all New York City neighborhoods, change is around every corner, and the number of residents who call this downtown district home continues to grow.

A mansion-sized 14-room duplex at 740 Park Avenue, a building considered to be Manhattan’s most luxurious residential address, is now on the market for $26,000,000. Built in 1929 by James T. Lee, grandfather of Jacqueline Bouvier (later Kennedy Onassis), who lived there as a girl, the Art Deco building was designed by Rosario Candela. One of its first notable residents was John D. Rockefeller, Jr., who resided in a duplex similar to the one featured here.
