On the Auction Block: Rare Gottleib Sale at 79 Horatio

New, 17 comments

The William Gottleib Management Company, founded by notorious West Village property hoarder Bill Gottleib, will put 79 Horatio Street up for public auction next month. The parcel—a 5 story, 6,370 sq. ft. brick landmark district townhouse, mostly vacant save for a couple of rent controlled tenants—is jointly owned by the Gottleibs and Vicky Gabay, who is forcing the auction after a lengthly legal battle to, borderline literally, pry the property out of Bill Gottleib's cold, dead hands. [Inter-family ugliness ensues here.] Anyway, in preparation for auction, an auction book has been prepared. Bidding is expected to start around $5 million for the Highline-adjacent views and the opportunity to repossess a couple of $200/month apartments.
