  • Sold for $3,550,000
  • Built in 1819, second oldest townhouse in SoHo
  • 1,475 square feet
  • 1,650 square feet of air rights

The Manhattan buyer was not deterred by the small size of this nearly 200-year-old townhouse, originally constructed by a spinster and seamstress before it was converted to a bordello - also known as a brothel - in 1832.

These days it was vacant, but that didn't lower the price. The buyer paid an aggressive $2,400 per square foot so he can live there.
