A synagogue that has been converted into a professional artist studio has hit the market for $6.2 million, Curbed reported.

The three-story brick building at 80 Forsyth Street was built in 1874. Nearly a century later, in the 1960s, painter Pat Passlof bought the rundown property and renovated it into a work space. Passlof was married to painter Martin Resnick, who had a synagogue-turned-studio on Eldridge Street, Curbed noted.

The 15,180-square-foot building has three units with double-height ceilings, skylights and a fireplace. It also comes with 3,200 square feet of air rights and is zoned for commercial or mixed use, according to the listing with Massey Knakal. [Curbed] –Hayley Kaplan
