A block of 78th Street on the Upper West Side, between the Museum of Natural History and Amsterdam Avenue, has more going for it than just colorful brownstones; it also has a colorful architectural secret. The block’s display of Moorish brick and stone buildings shares a history with some of the city’s notable public spaces. Known as “Guastavino Row,” its decorative and altogether charming townhouses were designed by noted 19th-century architect Rafael Guastavino, famed for his beautiful and expertly engineered vaulted, tiled ceilings. Recently, a small but lovely first-floor studio at 120 West 78th street listed for $359,000, and it boasts a beautiful ceiling that, according to the listing, was one of Guastavino’s iconic designs.

In the years prior to her untimely death in 1959 at the age of 44, jazz legend Billie Holiday lived in this Upper West Side brownstone at 26 West 87th Street, just steps from Central Park. The storied, historic home first hit the market back in October 2015 for $12,950,000, and after a series of reductions, the listing was handed over this past September to Million Dollar Listing’s Ryan Serhant, who dropped the price to $9,999,000 and featured the property on a recent episode of his show. Lady Day’s house, built in 1910 but recently renovated, has now finally found a buyer for $9,475,000.

If the Yankees’ recent spate of bad luck has gotten you down, here’s one way to re-live the Bronx Bombers’ glory days–though it’ll cost you $4.5 million. LL NYC noticed that Joe DiMaggio’s former Upper West Side penthouse has hit the market. Joltin’ Joe lived in the classic six pad at 400 West End Avenue from 1939-1942, during his brief marriage to actress Dorothy Arnold, as well as his record-breaking 56-game winning streak. In addition to the celebrity pedigree, the most spectacular part of the home is its 1,300-square-foot, wrap-around terrace with three exposures offering views of the iconic Apthorp, Hudson River and New Jersey, and George Washington Bridge.

This Hotel des Artistes apartment, now on the market, comes with an incredible interior decor story. Bloomberg notes that it belongs to the French-born entrepreneur/photographer/art collector/playboy Jean Pigozzi, who purchased it in 1986. Soon after, he enlisted Ettore Sottsass, designer and founder of the Memphis Group, to redesign it. Sottass, at the time, was at the height of his fame, and ended up designing every nook and cranny. (He passed away in 2007, and the Metropolitan Museum of Art will host a retrospective of his work this summer.) As Pigozzi told Bloomberg, “He designed 100 percent of everything… Every table, every sofa, every book shelf, every sink, every doorknob.” He even helped Pigozzi expand the design into the adjacent duplex that he purchased a few years later. Now, the fabulous penthouse is on the market for $19 million.

A one-bedroom apartment on the Upper West Side for around a million seems almost too good to be true as it is; this townhouse duplex at 172 West 82nd Street is all that plus a terrace and a wood-burning fireplace for $1.01 million. While the interior reads more East Village than Upper West with two walls of exposed brick, a fresh renovation is uptown-efficient. This walk-up co-op is in a charming bay-windowed brownstone on an equally charming tree-lined block.

As 6sqft previously reported, Tribeca Film Festival co-founders (with Robert DeNiro) Jane Rosenthal and Craig Hatkoff have been trying to sell their sprawling pad in the storied Dakota since last March, when they listed the 7,500-square-foot combo of no less than four individual units for the suitably vast sum of $39 million. A year and some months later with no takers, the couple, who announced their divorce in 2014–have edited a cool $19 million out of the picture and are now asking $25 million (h/t Curbed).

The right design can make a studio apartment feel larger, as this one on the market for $389,000 proves. It is located in the Upper West Side‘s Broadmoor co-op, 235 West 102nd Street. It’s been on and off the market for a few years now, asking as low as $309,000. The cozy space is aided by big windows and plenty of greenery. Prewar details like beamed ceilings and bordered hardwood floors don’t hurt, either.
