Greenwich Village to Williamsburg: “Can You Hear Me Now?”
Verizon pitchman Paul Marcarelli just sold his 2 bedroom, 1½ bathroom co-op apartment at 41 Fifth Avenue for $1.255 million.
Marcarelli paid $799,000 for a new condo in Williamsburg last fall in The Rialto at 150 N. 5th Street in Brooklyn.
You can take a tour of this renovated co-op in the heart of Greenwich Village with listing broker Laurie Silverman.
Given how long it took Marcarelli to sell his co-op, the apartment appears to have been crying out to him, “Can you sell me now?”
It was first listed for $1.425 million in July 2009, but it sold for 12% less.
Although the co-op is in the heart of Greenwich Village in a Rosario Candela building, it seems to have a few drawbacks. These include a huge $2,000/month maintenance, and a rather smallish size. Not exactly a family home, but a perfect starter co-op.
