Sold, finally, for $2,105,000 and after months on the market, the glamorous 98 Rockaway. One deal fell through, and it sat on the market with successive reductions, dropping $490K under the original asking price from October '05. Last fall it seemed that any well-renovated property went for whatever was asked. Except this one, the one with the most beautiful bathrooms west of Twin Peaks. It might have been the shoe-removal requirement at the open houses, thus launching memories of walking shoeless through airport security, laptops on, that kept potential buyers from whipping out their checkbooks.
At 999 Green Street, aka The Summit, a one-bedroom one-bath in original mid-century condition with amazing views . For $3,000 over the asking price of $1,100,000. We have no idea why, either. Probably six weeks on the market.
