Live in the house that inspired the art for 'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie'

Yes, that's the bonus trivia question that comes with this lovely house at 264 Seventh St. between Avenue C and Avenue D.


According to the Corcoran listing: 'Felicia Bond lived in the Garden Duplex when she illustrated the renowned children's book 'If You Give a Mouse a Cookie.'"



Otherwise, the rest of the place:

This incredible East Village three unit townhouse has great bones and endless possibilities! Currently set up as a parlor floor duplex with back yard and two floor through apartments, this classic townhouse is a great investment property or could be made into your own single family home! 48 Hours Notice required to view.

Asking price: $3.2 million. Perhaps a young writer will be inspired to write or illustrate "If You Give a Pub Crawler the Last Shot of Patrón" here.

Can I just have the back yard?

This is one of my favorite buildings on one of my favorite blocks....anyone got $3.2M I could borrow? Er, have?

I wish more buildings would get colorful paint jobs...

I hope the mice aren't included...Goggla, in my new city/neighborhood(Richmond/The Fan) the row houses are painted in a giant rainbow of colors, with neighbors teaming up to get complimentary paint jobs. The effect is marvelous. We even have a couple of purple/hot pink houses that got through before the yuppies took over the neighborhood association and started issuing dictats about EVERYTHING...

I can spot you $5. And a leftover 2-for-1 poker chip from HiFi.

Hey, if a guy can buy a house starting with one red paperclip, I'm sure we can do it starting with poker and beer chips!

@Goggla, I'll share it with you? I can chip in about 1/100th. I am certain we can rent out the roof and the basement to make up the rest.
