Not all the artists are returning to 475 Kent Avenue, the South Williamsburg live/work loft building?excuse us, artists' community?condemned on a cold winter's night because of the landlord's illegal matzo baking operation in the basement. This means that openings in the now up-to-code waterfront building should be spreading via word of mouth and Craigslist. Here's one such listing, sent in by a tipster, for an eighth-floor, 1,400-square-foot concrete box in the building. "New paint and stainless appliances" are coming soon, and man, you can't hate on those windows and views. So, how much to live in this former deathtrap? The very unstruggling artist's price of $3,600/month. Complimentary matzo no longer included.
