Hey, whatever happened to the gritty Alphabet City of yore? It cleaned up all pretty! The latest: 331 East 8th Street, a five-unit development marketed by our pal Rob Gross at Douglas Elliman that appears to be sold out. Check the wood and metal façade next to a community garden—tasty juxtaposition. Just in contract for $1.335 million is the 1,600 square foot garden duplex, described thusly: "This is an English Garden in the Lower East Side!" After the jump, a peek at the Garden Duplex floorplan.
