It seems that quality mid-century homes in desirable neighborhoods are not suffering quite as badly as the rest of the real estate market. Case in point: yesterday's Eugene Kinn Choy-designed house broke even on its 2006 sales price. Today we check in on Gregory Ain's 1947 Avenel Cooperative Housing corner unit. The unit had a flexible interior with sliding partition walls, allowing residents to configure it as a one-, two-, or three-bedroom home. It also had one of the sweetest libraries we've seen in a while. The asking price when it went on the market in March was $695,000. Well it seems the unit wasn't on the market for long. It sold by May for $685,000. Were the books included? See the full slideshow here.
