All the latest real estate and neighborhood news from Curbed NY...
1) Secret Places: Photographer Will Ellis of Abandoned NYC answers some questions about his new book, which features 16 derelict locations (mostly) within the New York City limits, including a partially submerged Coney Island submarine and to a former hospital in Queens that's now a refuge for pigeons.
2) Chelsea: Broker Fredrik Eklund of Million Dollar Listing fame has put his own surprisingly reserved Chelsea three-bedroom on the market for $2.995 million. He had previously asked $3.25 million for the place, but failed to find a buyer.
3) Greenwich Village: Mary-Louise Parker had a very difficult time selling her Washington Square Park-bordering duplex in 2013, and now the couple who ended up buying it already wants out.
4) Upper East Side: The triplex penthouse atop the Pierre Hotel, formerly owned by late financier Martin Zweig, has cut its price to "only" $63 million. The "only" is at least somewhat apropos because the place started off asking $125 million, which means that it has now earned its spot in the Pricechopper Hall of Fame.
