Favorite Harlem Real Estate Floor Plans

We have always loved the Dwyer @ 285 St. Micholas Avenue in Harlem.

We watched it grow up. And if sales price is any indication of maturity, that has certainly happened in this corner of Harlem, at least from a real estate market perspective.

Below is one of our favorite floorplans in this magnificent building.

Enrich your hearts, minds and souls this Happy Easter
