"Really nice" ... but still between Ave. C & Ave. D for "ONLY" $6.5 million! The real estate business truly does count on a sucker being born every minute.

I actually thought the price was going to be higher. If this townhome was in the west village, it would easily go for over 10 million. I happen to live on this very street and pass it each day. I always wanted to know what it looked like it inside. Now, I know. Beautiful and renovated. Just a little out of my price range :(

Why do they have to fuck around "improving" the interiors of gorgeous old buildings? You want a modern loft? Then fucking BUY one!

Not my taste, the owner remade a 1800's townhouse into a commercial loft looking building.

I've always dreamed of living on that block, in one of these old buildings that back up to the Green Oasis garden. Let me just go buy a lotto ticket...

I love those floors.

The floors are the only original. They gutted everything else. This must have been a beauty back in its day.

They left the floors, though! Those floors really make me feel some kind of way.
