It's been a while since the landmarked Samuel Tredwell Skidmore House at 37 East 4th Street changed its mind about becoming a single-family mansion. The new plan was to turn the building into a 10-unit rental next to new fancypants 2 Cooper Square (both developed by Atlantic Development Group). The Times gets a look inside the restores and renovated building, where residents can have a little historic ambiance and access
(for a fee!) (UPDATE: the building's PR team tells us the 2 Cooper amenities are free to Skidmore House residents) to the amenities at 2 Cooper.
Landmark regulations mean that many of the building's historic outer features are still there, and the rear of the building now has a piazza and three-story addition that contains bedrooms for three of the building's apartments. So how much for this mix of Bowery worlds? Studios will start at $2,500/month, 1BRs at $4,500/month, and the building's sole 2BR for $6,000/month. Slightly higher than during the days when Skidmore stashed his eight children in the house, but not as stratosphere as some of the new neighbors.
