Has it really been two years since our last post about the Ludlow Residence dorm at 101 Ludlow? Okay, onward.

If you fancy a piece of the beige penitentiary, the opportune moment has arrived. The narrow, 800 square-foot commercial unit near the dorm entrance – currently home to the Hummus Shop – is now on the chopping block. Elliman is the exclusive brokerage house carrying the listing, pitching a price tag of $220,000 in key money. After that, it’s up to you to meet the $3,800 in monthly rent.

Here are the pertinents. Apparently the Hummus Shop has a twenty-year lease…
