The two-bedroom apartment at 59 Fourth Avenue is still sitting on the market six months after it first popped up. After an unfruitful summer and several price chops from its $3 million price tag, today the seller is asking a reduced $2.5 million for the East Village pad. While the loft has some interesting dimensions, it still has much in the way of character, and the flexible layout allows for creative adjustments. Add to that a sublime roof deck and a prime location at the intersection of Greenwich Village, East Village and Union Square, and this unique unit could be a winner. But we’ll let you be the judge.

Enjoy Your Own Private Rooftop Pool in the Heart of the City for $40K a Month, Wed, October 1, 2014
Apparently, even 1,500 square feet of mesmerizing outdoor space isn’t enough to get renters to pay the $40,000-per-month asking price for this Union Square penthouse at 17 East 17th Street. The unique home has had a pretty rocky history during its last few years on the rental market, and it appears to still be searching for a temporary dweller nearly a year after it last became available. As stunning as this 4,000-square-foot triplex is—and it’s a stunner—there’s one interesting choice that might make apartment hunters take pause. You’ll see what we’re talking about after the break.

Unique South Slope Loft Breaks the Mold with a Steel Mezzanine, Thu, September 4, 2014
On a quiet tree-lined block, among the rowhouses of South Slope, you’ll find 459 12th Street. Being a mid-century loft surrounded by turn-of-the-century conversions might already set this building apart from the rest. Yet, unit #3D takes it to the next level, as a previous owner decided to make the most of the high ceilings… and added an entire second floor.

$2.2 Million West Village Artists’ Loft with Tin Ceilings Is Quite the Muse, Fri, August 1, 2014
The pre-war details of this loft would serve as inspiration to any artist—which is perfect because it just so happens that 799 Greenwich Street is an artist’s co-op. That’s right. Accountants need not apply. But that doesn’t mean you can’t take a peek at this beautiful abode, which is apparently home to a budding young musician.

A Tree Grows In Brooklyn: $3.18M Historic Brooklyn Heights Town Home Has a Garden, Tue, June 17, 2014
Someone just purchased a nice little income property in Brooklyn Heights, according to city records. This 4-family town home, located at 36 Schermerhorn Street, is an original 1840s brownstone in one of Brooklyn’s premier locations. It offers 3,000 square feet of living space and a garden for the lower duplex. Yes, a tree grows in Brooklyn.
However, the best part of this unit, listed by Corcoran’s Vicki Negron, is that it already has tenants. Granted their lease expires in August, but minor details.
