If you have $12 million lying around, you can own a piece of history.
Alexander Hamilton Jr., the son of founding father Alexander Hamilton, was the first owner of a landmarked mixed-use townhouse at 4 St. Mark’s Place near Third Avenue that hit the market this week for $11.9 million.
Hamilton Jr. bought the building, known as the Hamilton-Holly House, in 1833 from famed 19th-century developer Thomas E. Davis. It measures over 10,000 square feet in total, with four market-rate apartments and nearly 5,700 square feet of first-floor and lower-level retail.
A rare building to have survived the Federal period intact, 4 St. Mark’s is more recently known as home to punk fashion retailer Trash and Vaudeville, which will be moving to a new location. The property also housed performance art venues like the Bridge Theater in the 1950s and 1960s, according to the New York Post.
