The Momasphere-hosted reading by Prospect Park West author Amy Sohn at the Richard Meier building went down last night to mixed real-estate reviews from Only the Blog Knows Brooklyn and Effed In Park Slope.
Louise from OTBKB, who didn’t like Sohn’s book, actually liked the apartment. The reading was held in a third floor, four-bedroom apartment that “can comfortably seat 100 people,” she wrote, adding that “the kitchen had an enormous counter/island with some gorgeous looking appliances that sort of disappear seamlessly into the walls.”
“It was basically one of those all white numbers where you can’t quite tell what’s a cabinet or what’s a refrigerator because everything is just white lacquer and looks the same.” Her list of complaints was lengthy; she disliked the oddly-placed load-bearing elements, overly trendy “leaded glass peekaboo shower wall[s],” the lack of interesting door knobs and faucets, and the unappealing “reverse railroad” layout of the place, among other things. A unit, by the way, cost up to $5 million.
Neither left with a buyers contract, but both left with a swag bag that included “mojito-flavored lickable oil” from Babeland.
