The charming 65 E. 2nd St. is for sale



One of my favorite buildings (from the outside anyway) in the neighborhood, 65 E. Second St., recently arrived on the sales market.

Here are the details on the building between First Avenue and Second Avenue via Leslie J. Garfield:

[T]his 4,600 square foot townhouse has been fully gut renovated into three gracious apartments overlooking the Marble Cemetery, the oldest public cemetery in New York City.



Originally built c. 1834 as a Greek Revival-style row house with cast-iron stoop posts and hand-railings, basket-style iron fire escape, rope moldings and historic wood casement windows and transoms.

65 East 2nd Street is located in the prime East Village, on the cusp of NoHo and the Lower East Side, surrounded by new condominium developments, cafes, boutique shops, and trendy restaurants. This turnkey townhouse is suitable for both end-users and investors alike, with the ability to move into the owner’s duplex immediately, while offering longterm upside in a rapidly developing neighborhood.

APT 1: Currently configured as a three-bedroom, three bath garden duplex featuring central air-conditioning, custom chef’s kitchen and cabinetry, high-end finishes, washer/dryer and two private outdoor spaces. Can be delivered vacant. Current tenant paying $9,500 per month.

APT 2: Currently configured as a fully renovated three bedroom, two bath apartment featuring central air conditioning, gut renovated kitchen and bathrooms, 11’ ceiling heights, and unobstructed, sunlit views north. Can be delivered vacant. Current tenant paying $6,600 per month.

APT 3: Occupied by a life-tenancy, this apartment is currently configured as a fully renovated three bedroom, two bath apartment featuring central air conditioning, gut renovated kitchen and bathrooms, 9.5’ ceiling heights, and unobstructed, sunlit views north. Tenant paying $500 per month for life.

Asking price: $5.75 million

YAY for Apartment 3!

Meantime, the rents on the other 2 apartments are completely insane, as is the asking price for the building (especially for that location). Seriously, people would rather spend $9,500/month in RENT than put that amount toward a mortgage payment? My mind is officially boggled.

Seriously, respect to Apartment 3.

Apartment 3, please let Grieve interview you! You can remain anonymous! (Note: I have absolutely no authority to negotiate the terms of this interview. AND YET. WATCH ME.) We would love to see pix of your place and hear your story, and we have no venom, only admiration. xoxoxoxoxoxo

But . . . let's wait to see who the buyer might be who'll undermine everything, even the structural integrity of the building, and, alas, the viability of apartment 3.

You go, Apt. 3; would love to know how long you have been living there. I bet you have some tales to tell about the old EV...

If I win the lottery on Wednesday, I will buy this, and ask for landmarks protection for it!

You can look up the building on Streeteasy if you want to see what the apartments look like. Looks like there's a garden, too.
