A $4 MILLION CONDO ACROSS THE STREET FROM CARNEGIE HALL
In contrast to its taller, flashier neighbor a few doors down, The Briarcliffe at 171 West 57th Street is an exercise in how to keep an immense low profile. The building was built in 1922, and when someone asks how to get to Carnegie Hall, residents can pre-empt the punchline by pointing out their living room windows to the famed concert hall and answering “Cross the street.” Apartment 4C has 3BR/3.5BA, and at 2,600 square feet is the second-largest unit in the building. Developer Mark Fessel of JAMES Development is selling the apartment for just under $4 million.
