555 Hudson Street, where urban activist and preservationist Jane Jacobs wrote Death and Life of Great American Cities while eating pixy stix from the candy store downstairs, has sold for $3.325 million. The original ask for the three-story townhouse, which still has a retail space on the ground floor and a two-story duplex on top, was $3.5 million. The original structure will remain intact, since the building's in the Greenwich Village Historic District. But it comes with an additional 1,456 of buildable space for the new owner to do with as she wishes, should she wish to get Jane really worked up in the afterlife.
