26-30 w 71

Not to be (greatly) outdone by its uptown neighbor across the park, the Upper West Side continues to break asking price records for its high-end townhouses. The stately granite-and-iron-spot-brick townhouse at 24 West 71st Street is being listed for $29 million dollars. If sold at that price, it would top the current record of $25 million for a property in the neighborhood, set by 247 Central Park West, the New York Times reported. The five-story, 7,134-square-foot building, situated in a historic district, was built in 1892 by architects Hugh Lamb and Charles Alonzo Rich.
