The first chance to live in Dapper Dan’s Harlem brownstone

If you buy this Harlem two-bedroom for $1.59 million, be warned: You may find yourself sharing the stoop of this brownstone with stars like Jay-Z, DJ Khaled, Salma Hayek — and Dapper Dan.

Dapper Dan, the longtime Harlem-based fashion designer — whose atelier is located in this building, at 241 Lenox Ave. — often created Gucci “knockups.” (Specifically, from 1982 to 1992, he created his own designs using Gucci and other fashion brand logos without permission until Fendi and then-US attorney Sonia Sotomayor shut him down.)

These days, he partners with Gucci, and the biggest stars flock here for custom haute couture created with the brand’s fabrics. Oh, and don’t be surprised if you also see other clients, like LL Cool J, Salt-N-Pepa and other hip-hop greats from back in the day.

The condo unit is the first resale in the brownstone since the atelier opened downstairs last year.

It features a large living/dining area, oversize windows, Brazilian walnut hardwood floors, African mahogany doors and 14-foot ceilings. There’s also a common roof deck.

The listing brokers are Josue “Josh” Galdos and Jeff Krantz of Halstead.
