Abandoned building? Nope, actually only three people live in this building (and no, they are not squatters).
A few years ago, New York Magazine revealed that this graffiti-covered old bank on the Bowery (that we all probably thought was abandoned or filled with bums) is in fact a single-family-home. Yes, you read that correctly. Single-family home.
The old 30,000 square foot, bank was bought in 1966 for a mere $102,000 by photographer, Jay Maisel – who still occupies the now 72-room dream home with his wife and only daughter. Today, real-estate brokers estimate it’s worth at least $50 million.
New York Magazine was given a peek inside the Bohemian dream home, here are some of the incredible photos from the tour:
