We saw three of the units a few weeks ago (ranging in price from $4,900 to $5,150...) the listings at Streeteasy now include a few more photos that show the result of the gut renovations that commenced as many longtime residents didn't have their leases renewed ...
Per the listing, the broker is "releasing over 50 2&3Br apts over the next 6 months" here.
Upon the unveiling of the first units here back on March 11, the Observer filed a blistering critique...
Even though the building was converted from a middle-market residential space to a middle-market residential space putting on airs, not a factory. But why not pretend? Just like many of the tenants who no doubt take up residence here will be pretending that their “making it” in New York even as their parents help them pay their monthly $1,700 share of the rent. As the listing helpfully notes, guarantors are accepted. Because what is the East Village now if not a post-collegiate play pen for rich kids?
