Woo, sale! I know things are bad when $6.8M sounds like a deal.

Tiny, tiny, tiny, and made more tiny when you take out all the space the staircases use up.

And I love that listing on Streeteasy says "building amenities: garage parking"!

Whoever pays that much for the place gets the new "Stupid Buyer Award".

Actually, this is a beautiful, historic row house with a lot of history. One of its neighbors—I think on the Stuyvesant Street side—was a brothel in the early 20th century.

I'd buy it in a heartbeat if I had the money; are you telling me you wouldn't?

@Scuba Diva: Yes, I am telling you that I would not buy it if I had that kind of money. $6.8 million is a pretty big piece of change, and the house is currently divided into 4 apartments, so for it to be a single-family home would cost a ton of $$ in renovations.

Size-wise, the listing says 18 x 36 feet interior - so total sq. footage for each floor is 648; now subtract the square footage taken up by the staircase(s) and adjacent hallways, and you're down to about a generously sized studio apartment on each level.

A 6th floor walk-up is still a 6th-floor walk-up, no matter what kind of building it's in, and even if it's part of a duplex!

Notice they don't show much of the inside of the house in any of the listing photos.

For $6.8, I'd be buying in a building with full services, esp. where I didn't have to walk up & down stairs, a consideration as I get older & my knees are more creaky. And where they didn't need a sprinkler system to comply with the law!

You are right, its tiny. The listing actually says the building is 18 x 36, but the interior measurements are actually smaller because of the thickness of the exterior walls.
