Last Thursday, July 12, our One Museum Mile team—including Brickman, CORE, and Hundred Stories—were proud to welcome the media and Foreign Press Association to our picturesque corner of Upper Fifth to The evening kicked off with a walking tour led by historian Joyce Gold, who shared insight about the history of Upper Fifth and neighboring Central Park, as guests toured the park’s famed Conservatory Gardens and Harlem Meer. Later, the group returned to the exquisite 21-story structure, designed in part by noted architect, Robert A. M. Stern, for a panel discussion held on the building’s rooftop overlooking the northern end of Central Park. With New York City’s skyline as a backdrop, moderator Katherine Clarke of The Real Deal and our expert panelists Joyce Gold, CORE managing director, Tom Postilio, and StreetEasy vice president of research, Sofia Song, discussed the history and evolution of the neighborhood—all concurring that the finite availability of park-adjacent real estate will mean the eventual transformation of Upper Fifth and Central Park North. One Museum Mile, of course, is a harbinger of bright things to come.
Mesmerized by the view, it was no surprise that everyone was eager to see what else the building had to offer. The 21-story, 116-unit luxury condominium is replete with high-quality finishes and premium appliances in each of its one-, two-, and three-bedroom homes. A fitness center, children’s playroom, teen game room, lounge, catering kitchen, rooftop pool, and immediate proximity to Central Park and Museum Mile round out the resident amenities.
And finally, it was off to Red Rooster Harlem to conclude the evening at award-winning chef Marcus Samuelsson's classic American restaurant. Chattering about real estate, attendees dined on crab cakes, cocktails, and the famed spicy cornbread—all in all, the perfect way to end a whirlwind tour of our vibrant neighborhood.
