Posted 7/16/2015 by John H.

I found these guys on yelp about a year ago, and boy did they ever deliver.

My wife and I were looking for agents to list our co-op in Kensington, and we happened upon Arny Cohen. He and Robert Bryan came by to check out the place and immediately struck us as honest, hardworking guys with lots of personality. Our cat also approved, so we decided to give them the listing.

We got an above asking, all cash offer about two weeks in and were ready to close. Robert, being the scrupulous and well informed gentleman that he is, caught that we hadn't owned it long enough to avoid paying capital gains tax, so dissuaded us from the deal, instead encouraging us to wait. In this type of market it is VERY rare to have anyone remotely involved in your deal not pushing you to close as quick as you can - I'm sure it was difficult for Robert and Arny to walk away from a sure thing, but they did have our best interests at heart.

We relisted with them with the intention of buying another place. They quickly got another (much higher) all cash offer that unfortunately didn't pan out, but that didn't stop them from tirelessly showing us open houses in the far corners of Brooklyn every single weekend of the past cold winter. Sure enough, another offer came in that they negotiated up close to asking from a lowball initial offer and we got into contract. We closed yesterday. Thank you, Robert Bryan and Arny Cohen for working so hard for us and having a good time while doing it, too. We really appreciate it!

Steve West: This Place Has a Story

Friday – Sunday through July 17, 2016, 12:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.


Anthony Philip Fine Art

56 Bogart Street, Bushwick


The work of Brooklyn-based artist Steve West is a sort of archeological accounting of a city in constant flux. His keen observations of the details that make up something like a metropolis—the unearthed cobblestones, the broken concrete, the street art that is created and then removed, and again—all serve to describe a place and the forces at work there. DUMBO has served as his home for many years, and he has documented its transformation from geographic "other," to the gateway of a new Brooklyn, and finally to homogeneity driven by gentrification and speculation. West's current body of work, begun in 2014, seeks out the still-living character of this neighborhood hiding in the loam. It is there, in the chain link fences surrounding work sites, and here, in the graffiti half-covered by permits and advertisements. It is where a pile of broken concrete and rebar stands as testament to what once was, and as a signpost for what will be.

The exhibit opens with an artist reception on Friday, June 17, from 6-9PM and will continue during regular business hours through July 17.
