Asking $12M, this ivy-covered Upper East Side brownstone was once Gloria Vanderbilt’s home

Located in the Carnegie Hill Historic District in the heart of the Upper East Side, this ivy-covered 6,400-square-foot townhouse at 67 East 91st Street was built in the 1890s. The five-story home has been updated with elegant and functional 21st-century interiors–including an elevator, a greenhouse/studio, and a solarium–while retaining its turn-of-the-century charm. It was undoubtedly this quiet grandeur that won the heart of designer-author-socialite (and Anderson Cooper's mom) Gloria Vanderbilt, who lived here in the 1980s and 90s. The classic Manhattan townhouse was recently listed for $11,995,000.

Here are Manhattan’s 10 best-selling residential buildings in Q2 2022

The second quarter of 2022 is expected to be Manhattan's strongest on record due to a surge in the borough's ultraluxury market, according to a market report from CityRealty. While transaction volume decreased 11 percent year-over-year, an increased demand, low inventory, and a small number of new residential developments have caused prices to rise. Between April and June, the average sales price for a residential unit in Manhattan was $2.19 million, up 9 percent from its $2 million average in Q2 of 2021. Ahead, find a round-up of the top 10 residential buildings by aggregate sales in Manhattan during the second quarter of 2022.

This gorgeous $1.1M Upper East Side co-op was once the office of Marilyn Monroe’s psychiatrist

Marilyn Monroe may not have been very open at the time about her mental health struggles, but they've since been documented through diary entries and letters she'd written. As Vanity Fair noted, in the mid-1950s, Monroe saw a psychiatrist, Dr. Margaret Hohenberg, on the recommendation of her acting coach Lee Strasburg. Dr. Hohenberg, whom she visited up to five times a week, operated out of a first-floor office at 155 East 93rd Street. This exact Carnegie Hill apartment, now a residential co-op unit, has just hit the market for $1,125,000. It has lovely pre-war details, lots of closet space, and a nicely modernized kitchen.

LPC approves Rafael Viñoly’s revamp of National Academy building, but without rooftop addition

The plan to restore a historic Upper East Side townhouse and transform it into a new art gallery was partially approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission Tuesday. The neo-Renaissance townhouse at 3 East 89th Street in the expanded Carnegie Hill Historic District, as well as two connecting buildings, was formerly home to the National Academy Museum. Salon 94 owner Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn purchased the property last summer with the intention of consolidating her three art galleries at the property. Led by Rafael Viñoly Architects, the revamp includes a facade rehabilitation, new central gallery space, and a restoration of the original porte-cochere from 1915. While there was overwhelming support for the new gallery space, the LPC rejected the project's proposed sixth-floor rooftop addition, with most commissioners having issues with its bulk and visibility.
