$198 K Fixer-Upper Still On Market After Stint As Movie Set

New, 8 comments

We're checking back in on a listing that first appeared in April, and so far, has not budged the ask from $198 K. Built in 1879, it was later remodeled in 1881 by David Whitney, the millionaire lumber baron that built THE David Whitney building downtown. The place is described as a fixer-upper, but rumors indicated that indie movie god Jim Jarmusch helped improve the place some last spring, while filming in the home. Only Lovers Left Alive, a vampire movie, shot scenes in the house in July. Isn't it about time some Halloween maniac took the place over? The home is 4,990 square feet and flanked by empty lots. If you are willing to do some mowing, you might even claim it is "soccer field-adjacent." Or make that Futbol. You'll be the envy of the league.
