Workers finished demolishing the house in March 2012. The home was last owned by Barden Prisant, a former member of Community Board 3, who now lives in Brooklyn.
According to an article on living in Prospect Park South in the Times dated Oct. 6, 2011, Prisant and his wife "decided to sell their house in the East Village because a tall building was to go up next to their beloved backyard." (The in-progress Alphabet Plaza.)
