190 Bowery

Wow. I just opened the new issue of New York and this gem screamed at me. I haven’t even finished reading the magazine because I had to post this first. These photos are from a building at 190 Bowery that was purchased for $102,000 in 1966. 6 floors, 72 rooms. Today it’s worth about $30 million and the 3-person family living in it isn’t selling the incredible wonder. I can’t even imagine what I’d do with 72 rooms.

See for yourself.
