Live in the Avalon Bowery Penthouse

Posted on: November 30th, 2010 at 6:18 am by

Last Friday after Thanksgiving, a new real estate listing surfaced for the penthouse unit in the glass-box Avalon Bowery at 11 East First Street. And how much to live in a lap of luxury just off Bowery 2.0 where the notorious McGurk’s Suicide Hall once stood?

The 700 square-foot, 1-Bedroom apartment (sans balcony) is now seeking renters willing to shell out $3,820 per month. From this perch, the new renter will have front row access to the categorical destruction of the Bowery, and Lower East Side as a whole.

Broker babble herewith:

This one bedroom South Facing apartment opens up to a flood of light and is on cross-roads of Nolita, Noho, Soho & the Lower East Side. The apartment features floor-to-ceiling windows (you can even see the Williamsburg Bridge), Granite Counters in the Kitchen with stainless GE appliances, dishwasher, hardwood floors in bedroom and living room. Washer/dryer also in apartment.

Hungry? Go to Daniel Boulud’s DBGB or the Gemma Restaurant, or just cross the street and pick up something at Whole Foods. The Bowery Hotel and the Thompson Hotel are within walking distance. Blue & Cream & Favorita and Double Crown are your neighbors.

Guess the Mars Bar is too racy for their target clientele, despite shot-heard-round-the-world sightings of pink shirt partiers last year.
