Keith Richards is an English musician, singer, songwriter, actor, and one of the original members of the rock band The Rolling Stones. Rolling Stone Magazine credited Richards for “rock’s greatest single body of riffs” on guitar and ranked him 4th on its list of 100 best guitarists. Fourteen songs that Richards wrote with the Rolling Stones’ lead vocalist Mick Jagger are listed among Rolling Stone magazine’s “500 Greatest Songs of All Time”. The Stones are generally known for their guitar interplay of rhythm and lead (“weaving”) with Brian Jones, Mick Taylor and Ronnie Wood over the years. In spite of this, Richards plays the only guitar tracks on some of their most famous songs including “Paint It Black”, “Ruby Tuesday”, “Sympathy for the Devil”, and “Gimme Shelter”.
Fifth Avenue is a major thoroughfare going through the borough of Manhattan in New York City, United States. It stretches from West 143rd Street in Harlem to Washington Square North at Washington Square Park in Greenwich Village. It is considered among the most expensive and best shopping streets in the world.
Description: “Located in one of lower Fifth Avenue’s most prestigious and sought after cooperatives, this 4 bedroom duplex is perched high above Fifth Avenue’s “Gold Coast”. Meticulously renovated in 2011 by architect Joe Serrins, the resulting contemporary design is both distinctive and highly functional. On the main level, three setback terraces flank a 47-ft. expanse of living, dining and entertainment space with open views and privacy over historic Greenwich Village and the Manhattan skyline.
Adjacent to the living room is a dining area, breakfast counter and a modern sun filled kitchen. A large sliding glass window and door allow for an open, indoor/outdoor experience with a South facing terrace perfect for a morning espresso. On the opposite side of the common area, a library or guest bedroom with a full en-suite guest bathroom can be fully separated from the rest of the floor by a large sliding wall.
The master bedroom suite boasts two spacious walk-in closets and a spa-like bathroom with shower stall, soaking tub and double vanity sink.
An open staircase with leather wrapped bronze handrail leads to the upper level with two winged bedrooms, both of which have en-suite bathrooms. Between the bedrooms is a very large sitting area with open private city views. The apartment’s meticulous renovations also include Lutron lighting, central AC with an air purifying system and a fully integrated Sonos sound system. Additionally, a full laundry room and separate utility closet combine to create a true sense of home.
Originally a luxury hotel, built in 1929, One Fifth Avenue was the work of lead design architect Harvey Wiley Corbett and to this day is recognized for its sleek Art-Deco details and its prominence in the downtown skyline. This full service co-op is located in the heart of Greenwich Village and features a full-time doorman, resident super, laundry facilities and storage. The co-op also allows for pied-à-terre’s a pets.”
