240 Centre Street, formerly the New York City Police Headquarters, is somewhat known for its splashy pads with amazing details and high price tags–like this $40M penthouse in the building’s clocktower dome–that are better at getting attention than finding buyers; this remarkable duplex in the Nolita landmark is no exception. Late New York Five architect Charles Gwathmey designed this reborn 6,600 square foot home that includes what was once the police gymnasium. The stunning co-op has been on and off the market since 2008, at one point asking $31M (h/t Curbed); the four-bedroom apartment just reappeared on the market $18.5 million.

If you’ve always dreamed of owning a piece of mid-century modern history, now’s your chance. Located at 19 North West Landing Road in East Hampton, this abode was designed by famed New York Five architect Charles Gwathmey in 1968 for the graphic artist Joe Sedacca, hence its name the Sedacca House. It was only Gwathmey’s third commission in a long line of projects that would include the addition to Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Guggenheim Museum, 445 Lafayette Street, and the United States Mission to the United Nations.
The current owner of the home, Paul Amador, bought it in 1993 for only $245,000, reports Curbed Hamptons. At the time, he was quoted in the Times saying, “I feel like I won the lottery. I’m buying a piece of art for the cost of the raw materials.” He’s now looking to make a steep profit, asking $2.495 million for the “living sculpture.”
