The NYT has a fun story about an old, handsome, three-story brick building, sitting right in the heart of Greenwich Village and easily worth more than $11 million (and probably much more, based on a recent nearby townhouse sale).
Thanks to early 19th Century deed restrictions and a very eccentric owner, the Northern Dispensary building, where Edgar Alan Poe was once treated, has been sitting empty for decades now. Reading between the lines, it’s obviously the owner’s fault. He can’t find a non-profit tenant to serve the poor — in New York?
Is there a similar type of building in Boston? Let us know. We can think of a few, but not in such a prime, highly visible, highly desirable location like this.
