The estate's been sitting on this for more than two years, so will be ready to act any year now: http://streeteasy.com/nyc/sale/602236-coop-912-fifth-avenue-upper-east-side-new-york
Practically a railroad flat.
Yuck. What a layout. Am I reading this correctly that you can only enter the bedroom next to the dining room by going through another bedroom, a bathroom, and a connecting toilet (bizarre)? That can't be right (or legal). You'd think that aside from RE agents having just no idea whatsoever this place is worth (or maybe its the estate is hopelessly lost), they could at least get the floorplan right before looking for someone who'd spend zillions on the place. Unbelievable. a $5MM+ property and no one bothers to notice you can't get into a bedroom on the floor plan in a normal way. Shameful.
The dining-room photo shows a door from the hall to that third bedroom. But yes, for a big-money listing you'd think they'd spend a few bucks on a decent floorplan.
It does remind me of my old RS railroad-flat tenement, complete with soot around the windows. The previous occupants died in their nineties, and let the cleaning go to pot.
Sloppy error on the part of the listing agent re: the floor plan, which is clearly a mistake.
The apartment itself looks pretty dreary, at least on paper--lots of internal exposures and unusually narrow living room.
It's a mid-block lot only 65' wide, so tough to fit in two wide living rooms and two bedrooms. A 17'-wide LR is narrow only in the context of pre-war Fifth Avenue, though.
I think that the length of the LR makes it seem proportionally narrow.
Not really that different from dogleg classic 6es/7es elsewhere.
