Chumley's Update: Safe 'Til 2086?

Yesterday's bombshell that Massey Knakel has put up 86 Bedford for sale?the three-floor West Village building that houses the legendary speakeasy Chumley's?made us more depressed than Andrew Berman watching an episode of The Apprentice. Today, we're more like Andrew Berman watching workers dig up skeletons: still kind of upset, but suddenly filled with hope. A tipster sent along the 86 Bedford PDF one-sheet, and it's full of all sorts of useful information. Like, for example, of the three residential units above Chumley's, two are market-rate. Or the asking price: $3.75 million. Or the tidbit that Chumley's lease lasts until 2086, so hopefully one day our robot clones will be lifting a glass on the property wile laying waste to humanity in a hellstorm of fire.
