Built in 1886

For almost five decades, the opportunity to own a space within Calvert Vaux and George Kent Bradford's iconic Tompkins Square Lodging House has been non-existent. In fact, the last time anyone was able to purchase a unit here was back in 1978 when the East Village was the only place the likes of Iggy Pop, Allen Ginsberg and Jeff Koons could afford to find space and inspiration to create the art we now hold so dear. This is truly a once-in-a-lifetime chance to own a piece of Manhattan history. AND, now there are two.

Perched within the grand building at 295 East 8th Street awaits Apartment 3W - a breathtaking space with towering 12 foot ceilings, natural light from four exposures and a cozy wood burning brick fireplace tucked on the far side of this once orphanage's bunk room. Enormous windows on the south and west sides offer direct views of the always charming St. Brigid's Church and into the lush greenery of Tompkins Square Park's groves of trees.

Let your imagination run wild as you collaborate with your architects and interior designers to create a home that will surely grace the pages of top design rags like Architectural Digest, Interior Design, Elle Decor or Wallpaper.

While the current layout was lovingly put together on a tight budget over 40 years ago, it is ripe for reimagination. Consider transforming this vast space into an artist's dream loft or a multi-bedroom haven that will stand the test of time.

But please, Dear Buyer, use the majesty of the awe-inspiring patinaed cast-iron Corinthian columns, the original oak window framing, and the magnificent corner library as inspiration to create a home that will give you stories and memories for generations to come.

While our virtually rendered images and an alternate floorplan showcase a glimpse into one possibility for this incredible property, it beckons YOU to explore your wants and create your dream home. Don't miss this chance to unlock the future and create your space in one of East Village's most coveted gems.
