Live in a bit of history:
The Sage House was built in 1916 as headquarters for a philanthopic organization, the Russel Sage Foundation, by his widow. Russel Sage was a financier who was heavily involved with the construction of the NYC subway system. The building was then purchased in 1949 by Catholic Charities and converted as a residence for retired priests and nuns. It was sold again in the 1970s and made into an apt rental building, and was finally converted to coops in 1988 by Michael Beloff. A famous below ground brothel, complete with long mahogany bar, red velvet walls, and secluded hot tubs with overhead chains (all of which survived until about 10 years ago) operated in the building's basement in the 1930s and 40s (accessed thru the side door to the building on 22nd Street). That area is now occupied by storage cages available to Sage House residents. The Sage house was declared a historic landmark in 1996.
