Let’s see Lin-Manuel Miranda write a rap about this.

Internet and gaming hotspot Wanyoo Café inked a lease for a new location at 4 St. Mark’s Place, which was formerly the home of the founding father’s son.

Wanyoo, which has a location in Flushing and last year completed a $30 million Series D funding round, signed a 20-year lease at the renovated building. The deal covers 2,600 square feet on the ground floor and 1,400 square feet in the basement.

“I think the location was key for them,” said Eastern Consolidated’s James Famularo, who represented landlord Castellan Real Estate Partners. “They were targeting areas where there are a lot of students and a lot of foot traffic.”

Famularo said the café will most likely be open for operation by late spring or early summer, and given the late-night vibe on St. Mark’s, it could likely be open until 2 a.m.

The asking rent for the space was $150 per square foot. Tito Ghose of Halstead Property represented the tenant.

Alexander’s son, Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Hamilton, bought the townhouse in 1883. Castellan bought the building for $10 million in 2016.
