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.

Sculptor Sells 9 White Street Tribeca Loft for $3.6M

A New York City artist sold his duplex penthouse loft at 9 White Street in Tribeca, but only after a whopping 40% reduction from his original $5.95M list price when he first put the co-op on the market in April 2006.

Sculptor Bryant Hunt just sold his penthouse duplex loft at 9 White Street in Tribeca for $3,615,000.

That’s a nice chunk of change in today’s market, but it was not even close to the nearly $6M champagne and caviar price he tried to get nearly four (4) years earlier.

Here’s another way to look at the deal: for every month that Hunt’s duplex co-op loft remained on the market, the price effectively dropped another $48,645 until he sold it.

The buyers are award-winning film director David Schisgall and Vanity Fair contributing editor Evgenia Peretz.

Located in the heart of Tribeca, the 3,500 sq. ft. 3 bedroom, 2 bath co-op offers an enormous sun-filled space on two floors.

The master bedroom is up the steps on the top floor, surrounded by the roofdeck with a view looking North of the AT&T Long Distance Building built in 1932.

The broker who closed the deal for Hunt is Brown Harris Stevens VP and Director Jenny Park Adam, an art collector in her own right. She replaced Elliman brokers Jan Hashey and Steve Halprin.

According to public records, neighbors in the co-op include:

  • Psychiatrist William D. Sobel
  • General practice physician and artist Thomas Kovachevich.
  • Sweden Unlimited, an interactive design firm whose clients span the fashion, art, entertainment, and hospitality industries.
