An SRO at 615 Jefferson Avenue closed Friday for $1,550,000, or $55,000 over the asking price of $1,495,000, a probable record for an SRO in Bed Stuy. The gorgeous Romanesque Revival sandstone house belonged to photographer David Armstrong and inspired a book named after the house address. The house had been used as a one-family for the past 13 years and came with a certificate of non-harassment. It was designed by Brooklyn architect Isaac Delamater Reynolds in 1891, according to the listing. It was a House of the Day in October.
