Exterior of 1816 Delancey Street

Well, it’s about time! Last month, we pondered whythe Mary Curtis Bok townhouse was still for sale after a year. (Bok was the founder of the Curtis Institute.) One Property reader noted the kitchen’s lack of natural light and need for renovations. Still, the four-story property is on Philadelphia’s ritzy Delancey Street and has an elevator and six bedrooms. Yet 400-plus days later, the wallflower home saw little public activity. Until now.

We really hope this pending sale soon becomes official. The house must be getting pretty lonely!

    That should be Delancey Place, I believe.
