NYTimes article about home in Philadelphia
January 24, 2013 1:23 PM   Subscribe

A couple years back, the New York Times ran a profile of a super-awesome home in Philadelphia. Help me track down the article again?

I'm trying to track down a link for my friend. As best I can remember, the house was:

  • Located in Philadelphia
  • Brick and multiple stories, and it was probably a rehab from a non-residential use
  • Absolutely ginormous
  • Shaped like a triangle/on a triangle lot
  • Had an amaaaaazing roof deck
  • Was then up for sale, but probably is no longer on sale
  • Shown in photos that accompanied the text article

    I'm pretty sure that it's this one triangle, brick, multi-story house with an amazing roof deck that can be seen on the western side of the Blue subway line, between the Girard and Berks stops.

    The NYTimes ran the profile at least a year or two ago, possibly more, and it was definitely the NY Times and it was definitely online at some point. I've googled and NYTimes searched every combination of "brick triangle Philadelphia nytimes" that I can think of but no luck.

    This one, I'd wager.

    I would definitely vote for the former firehouse article too-- really a stunning building!

    I walk by that building all the time, it's super nice. As far as I can see from the office of property assessment, that building hasn't changed hands since 2003 so I guess it didn't sell.

    Got it in one! I don't know how I didn't find it, but thanks so much, Admiral Haddock.
