The Times may be struggling to make ends meet, but it looks like their Op-Ed contributor and former chief restaurant critic Frank A. Bruni is doing just fine. City records show that the NYC tastemaker has just closed on a classic six in a brick-clad prewar at 123 West 74th Street for $1.65 million. Although the apartment is in need of quite a bit of work, Bruni has the perfect canvas to create his dream home. The apartment comes with high ceilings, well-kept hardwood floors, and is soaked in light thanks to three large south-facing windows in the living room and two bedrooms.
The bones of the apartment have all the makings of a luxurious Upper West Side pad. Each room is sizable with its space well-distributed, making it easy to adapt the floor plan to suit modern needs. And given Bruni’s passion for food, we can imagine him expanding his kitchen into the neighboring maid’s room for some extra elbow room.
Being located within the Broadway Corridor in the heart of the neighborhood, Bruni will also enjoy a bustling residential neighborhood teeming with restaurants, supermarkets, artisanal shops and cultural institutions.
