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.

An unusually shaped 1,400 sq. ft. pre-war duplex co-op apartment at 29 East 9th Street just sold for $2,000,000, a little more than a 10% reduction off of the original $2,251,000 listing price when the 1 bedroom first hit the market last May.
According to Salon, Gandee secured a Conde Naste-backed mortgage “when he was just an editor at large” at the publisher’s now defunct House & Garden magazine. An inspection of New York City public records confirms this, including multiple filings listing Conde Naste as a secured creditor during portions of his nearly 18-year residence there.
The co-op is drenched in sunlight streaming in from the south through floor-to-ceiling windows in the 18-foot high living room. Monthly maintenance on the 5-room, 1 bedroom, 1 bath apartment is $2,581. The pre-war elevator building has a doorman, a common outdoor space, and — alas — a communal laundry room, not a private washer and dryer in the apartment.
The apartment has several tiny balconies that are just too cute; perfect for growing your own tomatoes or sunflowers.
Prudential Elliman brokers Dee Simonson and Mary Anne Cotter had the listing on the apartment, selling it in 7 weeks.
