That $40,000 townhouse rental that you been waiting for is now available on East 12th Street



A furnished four-floor townhouse is now available to rent over at 327 E. 12th St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

Here's part of the Streeteasy listing:

You won’t find a more magical place than East 12th Street, an exquisite five bedroom, three bathroom townhouse with a private terrace in the East Village. Spanning four floors, this home is full of delightful details, including the vintage wallpapers and multi-coloured doorknobs that are sprightly backdrops to your tastemaker host’s beautiful, eclectically chic décor.

The price to enjoy these multi-coloured doorknobs: $40,000 a month.

Oh, and there is a ping-pong table.

If someone wants to blow 40K on an apartment, they look for rentals at... Streeteasy?

"Multicoloured doorknobs" make it magical? I'd better get some fuckin' unicorns for my $40K.

Have to wonder about StreetEasy, as that townhouse is NOT at that address; in fact it's not even on that block between 1st & 2nd Avenues. It's on 12th between 2nd & 3rd Avenues, and the listing is here:

The owner rents it out during the summer months & over the holiday season. Maybe the merely "rich" (as opposed to "super-rich") need to make money from their houses to fund their vacations and/or second homes.

Only $40,000 a month? Nope, not according to onefinestay.com! They show the PER NIGHT cost in summer as $1,794, so a one-month stay (30 nights) will set someone back a total of $61,863.
