More photos of the apartment with the garage door for a living-room wall on East 14th Street

On Tuesday, we pointed out the article from The Wall Street Journal on the Brownstone East Village, the architectural wonder at 224 E. 14th St. near Third Avenue. Bill Peterson, the architect behind this, is selling his second-floor home for $2.499 million.

Anyway, the Corcoran tumblr posted more photos of apartment ... given how we're both fascinated and horrified by this place... we thought we'd share these action shots...

There's an Open House (so to speak!) Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.

Finally, your chance to own the 3-level penthouse at the Brownstone East Village


  1. Notice the portrait of Patti Smith over the couch? "Oooh, how East Village!"


  2. @ Alex

    The WSJ has a slideshow of the apartment. There's a framed, pink Fillmore East t-shirt in the bedroom. It's like a prisoner.

  3. We are definitely fascinated by this East Village apartment as well! It's an interesting idea, but it definitely wouldn't work for most NYC residents. Still not exactly sure how to feel about it.

  4. It is a monument to overreaching preciousness.

  5. Soot, pigeons, noise. That's what I think when looking at this pig f*ck.

  6. This really is difficult to fathom. Fourteenth Street, between Second and Third Avenues, with an entire wall of your living room exposed to the (human) elements? Really? And for a whole bunch of money?

  7. I still find this hilariously awful. The person who lives here must be some kind of crazy exhibitionist...Thierry Mugler?

  8. Probably the only time I would do something like this, but I have this incredible urge to act like a dog for a day, role around on that beautiful grass and then take a steamy dump.

  9. I can't fathom what somebody would want this. It's an interesting idea, I admit. But for a 2nd floor apartment on 14th street, it makes no sense. The street noise must be deafening.

    The only redeeming factor is that the cross wind though there must be great for air circulation. But again, what good is that on 14th street?
