Not too keen on "New York style" apartment buildings, a recent adjectival contrivance that may translate as loosely as "doorman + awning" or "sizable tower with many neighbors, each with strange cooking smells?" The seven-unit 294 Newbury Street in Back Bay may be just the anecdote. And, what do you know, the penthouse is up for grabs! A mere $2,869,000 gets you 2,124 square feet (not including the private 750-square-foot deck); 3 bedrooms; 3 bathrooms; 3 parking spaces; 2 fireplaces; and, as best we can tell from the floorplan, 10 windows fronting Newbury. Choicest part? Direct elevator access, no doorman. Boston style.
