Hi, I'm Alexander!

Former housing official for the City of New York, I renovated a 1895 Brownstone I bought in 1969 (where I still live) from a rooming house into an apartment building, putting on the roof the first solar hot water pre-heating system in NYC on a multiple dwelling (1977). I spent an un-Godly amount of money on the facade restoration, a job so good people ask "What's new?"

I like meeting new people and sharing my love for my City.

Here is my property:

Amazing, elegant studio with everything I needed

“ Excellent ”
August 21, 2012
This apartment was a lifesaver to us! So beautiful and elegant, with everything a family could need - all in it's place. The murphy beds transformed the elegant living room into a bedroom for 4 - and were incredibly comfortable.(And the sheets felt like 500 count!) Shades, every kitchen tool, gorgeous glass ware and dinner ware, elegant bathroom - all provided with friendly host and advice on where to go with our kids. I never would have believed that a "vacation rental" could truly have all the comforts of home, especially when I really wanted a good kitchen to feed my small children. And it's in one of the best neighborhoods in New York City. We ate at Zabars, played at the museum, and dined at the trendy restaurants on Columbus, walking in Central Park whenever we wanted since it was so close. I'm going back to this place again - and will highly recommend it to everyone.
