After nearly 4 years, First Street penthouse finally in contract

To be honest, we've always liked this beauty here at 6 E. First St. We pointed out when this penthouse unit was available as a rental for a mere $25,000 a month (only like $833 a day!)... The listing goes something like this:

Enjoy the ultimate indoor/outdoor lifestyle from this spectacular 3700SF triplex penthouse loft perched atop a former steel and concrete warehouse located at the crossroads of Soho, Noho, and the burgeoning Bowery district. Connected by a custom cantilevered steel staircase, each level of this amazing home offers something unique and unforgettable. On the first floor, you'll find a massive Living/Dining area bathed in southern light with 11-foot beamed ceilings, exposed brick walls, a wood-burning fireplace, and light from a 50-foot expanse of oversized windows. ... Ascend the stairs to the dramatic sun-blasted second level -- a grand-scaled entertaining space with 13' ceilings, polished concrete floors, custom walnut wet bar, full bathroom + direct access to an incredible wrap terrace ideal for sunbathing, stargazing and dining al fresco.

Someone will soon be stargazing and navelgazing and what not very soon... the unit entered into contract for $5.95 million. Quick history! Halstead first listed this PH back on Nov. 2, 2006 at $5.35 million... the price went up and down.... and a short 1,351 days later, it's in contract....
