New York's Ode to 1960s Science Fiction Asks $14.95M

New, 10 comments

What is it about this five-bedroom on NYC's Park Avenue that makes it so strongly resemble a forgotten set from the original Star Trek? The profuse use of brushed metal? The hall of mirrors? The nearly all-blue master bedroom? The weird, puckering black leather seating? No. The real indicator that this house was meant to explore strange new worlds and seek out new life and new civilizations is actually the build-in landline phone. And, not to belabor the point (too late!) but there's nothing that screams "boldly go where no man has gone before" quite like track lighting and silver built-in couches, provided you replace "has gone before" with "ever wants to go again." The ask: $14.95M. Strangely enough, this is not the first time travel machine to touch down on the island of Manhattan, though it's been years since the city's portal to the '80s landed.
