  1. Hi,

    I’ve been in this building a bunch of times- If my memory is correct, the entry to the building has an odd indoor/outdoor courtyard with outside metal stairs to the various floors, like a motel….Anyone recall if this is the same building?

    There is an elevator to each floor but they you have to walk outside to the unit’s door…..

  2. This is another one that sounds great from the description but doesn’t look great in the pics.

  3. I thought it was going to be a great deal, but its kind of dissapointing looking on the inside, I guess the price reflects that

  7. David…this is the building with the funky open middle courtyard. Quite an unusual interior to the building.

  11. 20% is pretty good – it is more than the average seller takes off the listing price!!

  12. “Did anyone show up last time CLIO?”

    One person showed up but he wouldn’t tell me who he was – despite me buying him drinks….

  15. Hmm, my bat sense is tingling. If clio’s buying that might mean he’s no longer getting crushed. If he’s spending frivolously his longs may have bottomed, zirp may be working. . . .

    Nahh. A better signal that the re market’s going higher is when clio offers to pick up the whole tab. Until then, sit tight old chums.

  17. For 2400 sq ft this place sure seems cramped from the photos. The stairs eat into the living room, the kitchen looks tiny, the dining room table is under the stairs,etc.

  22. Would love to, Clio, but sadly, I work out in the burbs and couldn’t easily get down there. I’d be happy to introduce myself to you and any others who show up if I ever do get the chance.

    I had the same reaction as Benjamon to this place. It looks extremely cramped and not comfortable to live in.

  24. I might show up next time if Clio picks up the parking fee, which in that ‘hood can be a lot more than 25-25% of the eat/drink tab for this teetotaling dieter.
