East 8th St. apartment, now with red suspension bridge, back on the market

[EVG file photo]

When we last checked in on 337B E. Eighth St., the Sandy-ravaged apartment near Avenue C was getting a post-superstorm gut renovation...

[November 2012]

As Curbed noted this week, there's a new listing for the 2,300-square-foot residence. Here's a look at the description:

Architectural Masterpiece 2BR 1.5 BATH LOFT in East Village!!!
You really need to see this to understand it.


Private entrance. Entire floor of a building.

Live Work permitted. Suspension bridge, W/D, DW, radiant floors, stainless steel, heated solarium space, sky lights, home office.

Many of the light fixtures in pics are going to be changed. Owner is installing a granite and stainless steel island in the kitchen area

The price per month: $7,999.

Here's when the suspension bridge was white... back in March 2012 when the rent was only $6,950.

And as noted here several times previously, this was the site of 8BC, the performance space/club/gallery that saw the likes of They Might Be Giants, Karen Finley and Steve Buscemi take the stage during its run from 1983-85...

Does anyone else remember seeing Tabboo, Happy Face and Jack Pierson perform the Hans Christian Anderson show there? Perhaps will help your memory, one character was Lars Hagen Daz,and there was a controversy regarding Hans' decorating with marigolds and olive green canisters with mushroom decals.

I never went here when it was 8BC, but does anyone remember when the building had a face painted on it? It was completely rebuilt, but I had no idea it had been rebuilt into such hyper-luxury apartments.

I live a few doors down, and have since 1990 or so. Wish I had known there was an open house; I would have dropped by.

Yes, The face was painted by Luis Frangella, a brilliant and talented artist and wonderful person who was a victim of HIV.
