Since the 1960s, 405 E. 13th St. (aka 404 E. 14th St.) has hosted and housed a dynamic community of artists, poets and filmmakers, a long list that includes Claes and Patty Oldenburg, John Chamberlain and Yayoi Kusama. (Wes Anderson is a current tenant here in the nondescript building near First Avenue.) The works of the building's past and current residents were on display this summer at the Tibor de Nagy Gallery. (Read our piece on this here.)
And now there's a listing for a unit here (something that doesn't seem to happen all that often). Per Halstead:
This sprawling East Village loft offers it all. It features great light from 3 different exposures, High ceilings, a brand new chef's kitchen, beautiful refinished hard wood floors, and an excellent location. Enter your spacious new home via keyed elevator and be blown away by the airy open feel. Perfect for entertaining and quiet evenings at home this Live/Work loft provides both flexibility and comfort. It is complete with a washer/dryer, 1.5 baths, a very large master bedroom, walk-in closet and a dining room ... you will be hard pressed to find a more convenient or inspiring location.
The price: $6,200 a month... take a look...
