The Mango - 301 East 38th Street
One of the things I love about real estate is finding hidden treasures – like The Mango.
First off, I love the name of the building “The Mango” - just saying it puts me in a good mood. Try it - just say “The Mango.” See, don’t you feel better?
One-bedrooms for the price of studios is The Mango’s claim to fame. Now add the fact that Giovanni the porter told me that they are putting in a gym and a roof deck for the spring of 2009 and you are getting one great deal. Units are literally 30% less than the cookie cutter high-rises surrounding it. So if you are looking for NY character, crown molding-pre-war chic-The Mango is it.
