Today on Bowery between Broome and Delancey the road caved in covering almost a full lane.  It even ate a truck.

I stumbled across an item on Refinery29 about the seemingly vacant building at 190 Bowery this evening, via colleennika, and found the story so fascinating that I actually clicked through to the original 2008 New York Magazine piece on the same property. (I’m linking the latter piece because its image gallery is much better.)
I love this story because it’s such a quintessentially New York real estate tale. And also because, after over a year of walking past the building nearly every day when I lived on the Bowery, and day-dreaming of living in it myself someday, it was rather shocking in a fantastic way to discover that someone else actually already does live in it.
Awesome.

The building at 190 Bowery is a mystery: a graffiti-covered Gilded Age relic, with a beat-up wooden door that looks like it hasn’t been opened since La Guardia was mayor. A few years ago, that described a lot of the neighborhood, but with the Bowery Hotel and the New Museum, the Rogan and John Varvatos boutiques, 190 is now an anomaly, not the norm. Why isn’t some developer turning it into luxury condos?
Because Jay Maisel, the photographer who bought it 42 years ago for $102,000, still lives there, with his wife, Linda Adam Maisel, and daughter, Amanda. It isn’t a decrepit ruin; 190 Bowery is a six-story, 72-room, 35,000-square-foot (depending on how you measure) single-family home.
“I can’t believe it,” says Corcoran’s Robby Browne, an expert in downtown real estate. “I thought it was vacant.”

Digging the “Cooper Hotel” mural next to Mars Bar that subtly says “FUCK YOU, GENTRIFICATION!”
Backstory:  Bowery used to be a shit hole and now it’s all blinged out w/ fancy hotels & cocktail bars.  Mars Bar is the sketchiest dirtiest dive I can think of East of Bowery (runner up:  Lucys?) and, rumor has it, lost it’s lease to another luxury condo.  
We were here a few nights ago and saw some dude hammering nails into his nose (no joke).  I gave him $2.
