St. Marks Townhouse Once Home to Trash & Vaudeville Sells For $10M (Curbed):

A landmarked St. Marks Place home, that once belonged to Alexander Hamilton’s son, has just sold for $10 million, the Commercial Observer reports. That house was also home to the punk-rock shop Trash & Vaudeville until it moved out of that space in February this year.

Hamilton-Holly House, as the building is known, was purchased by Castellan Real Estate Partners for $2 million under the original asking price. The property was first listed by Eastern Consolidated for $11.9 million, but by February this year that priced had dropped down to $10.5 million.

The townhouse is currently empty, but was previously configured to have retail on the ground and lower level, and four free-market apartments above that. A new owner could potentially reconfigure the entire space, an agent for Eastern Consolidated told the Commercial Observer.

Alexander Hamilton Jr. purchased the 10,000 square-foot house two years after it was built in 1831. The building was declared a New York City landmark in 2004.
