Own a piece of East Village History!! Originally home to the famous live music venue Mo Pitkins, this is a rare opportunity for a user or investor to acquire a unique mixed use 4 story walk up building in the heart of the East Village.

The 3rd floor (currently leased mo mo) is a floor through 1425 sqft live/work space with exposed brick, high ceilings and newly renovated kitchen and large floor to ceilings windows. This unit could also be transformed into a 2 bed 1.5 bath apartment. The top floor is a duplex penthouse with 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, brand new kitchen and 2 very large private outdoor spaces. This is a Unique Building loaded with charm and character including exposed brick, high original tin ceilings, large windows, multi levels and large lofty spaces throughout.
Price: $4.65 million.
CB3 has rejected recent plans — including a group featuring Phil Hartman of Two Boots — to turn this space back into a performance venue after its turn as Aces & Eights.
As the Observer reported in November 2008, 34 Avenue A was sold to an entity called LAMNG Corporation for $4 million. The building had been on the market for more than a year, with an initial listing price of $5.5 million.
On May 16, an unknown group will make another pitch for the space before the CB3/SLA committee.
