Take a last look inside the mysterious 190 Bowery

Photographer Jay Maisel bought 190 Bowery in 1966 for $102,000. He recently sold it for a reported $55 million.
Developer Aby Rosen, the current owner, is apparently marketing the building for a retail-condo combo.
Meanwhile, for a glimpse of what the building is like now inside (and on the roof), we spotted this video yesterday at the Popular Photography website.
You don't see everything in the six-story, 72-room, 35,000-square-foot building… but you get the idea…
A Curbed tipster spotted movers carting out furniture and what not from the building at Spring Street last week.
In 2008, New York had what was believed to be the media's one and only inside look at the place.
Maisel lived in part of the the 1898 Germania Bank building with his wife and daughter.
