House & Home Roundup: 6.25 pts
Humour me. This week’s H&H gets all funny with itself, and it is truly interesting to watch how much this section changes week to week. In a way, it’s a good thing. It is a little unpredictable… like fashion. Especially when the lead story is written by Lockhart Steele of Curbed. The barbarians are at the gate!
Biggest news is that Cooperative Village, the housing project on the Lower East Side (at Grand St.) has become a hip new residence. These were not available on the open market until 2000. Over the past few years, more and more young, design-oriented folk have been snapping up apartments here, stripping them down and making them modern beauties. Prices have ranged from $290,000 for a two-bedroom in 2002 to $$230,000 for a studio last year.
