News from the Curbed wire yesterday: A 2,400 square foot townhouse at 65 PPW (between 2nd and 3rd Streets, if your Google Maps finger is feeling particularly lazy) is on the market for $3.4 million. "What's the big deal, Meredith?" you ask while twisting your handlebar mustache, "Lotsa fancy-ass places up on the Pee Pee Dubs." Because the exact same place just sold for a paltry $1.4 eight months ago.
Curbed isn't sure what the cause is for the $2 million Corcoran markup (we're back and forth between "renovations" and "corporate hubris," leaning towards the latter), so I figured I'd ask: Does anyone have the scoop on this place? Have any of you who live around there (who am I kidding, those people are too fancy to read our FIPS bitching) seen a metric ton of construction going on, or did some intern have a little too much fun at a DUMBO warehouse party the night before he had to put this listing into the computer?
Another peek at the floorplan and curbside photo here. I wonder: If we all pool our money, anyone into buying this place and making it the official FIPS party house? We'll be like Misshapes meets The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas, except there'll be tons of fucking babies. I mean tons of 'em.
