Kareem Selling Harlem Townhouse

The Real Deal reports that basketball great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is selling his townhouse in New York City's Harlem neighborhood for $3.1 million. Near the top of the price range for Harlem, the brownstone is well-equipped. It is believed that Abdul Jabbar is moving to California.

Basketball legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's Harlem brownstone is for sale.

The five-bedroom townhouse on West 120th Street, priced at $3.1 million, is listed with Prudential Douglas Elliman's Tamara Haas Marotta.

According to city documents, the house was purchased in 2002 by a California-based entity known as the Dana Point Trust, which was created for Abdul-Jabbar.

At 7-foot-2-inches tall, now-retired Abdul-Jabbar is the NBA's all-time leading scorer. Born Lewis Ferdinand Alcindor Jr., the basketball star grew up in Harlem and Inwood, and has been a neighborhood fixture since moving into the townhouse. In 2007, he published "On the Shoulders of Giants: My Journey through the Harlem Renaissance." More recently, he co-wrote and produced a documentary about the Harlem Rens basketball team, slated for release in 2011.
