There are several pieces of evidence that red-brick landmark 295 East 8th Street tends toward the theatrical. For one thing, it reportedly is or recently was home to actor Matt Dillon. For another, the building's 2,300-square-foot 2BR with a stage now has a giant "rented" stamp on its $8,900/month listing. Next up on the rental market is another 2,000-square-foot two-bedroom in the building. EV Grieve shares the brokerbabble: "this 2 bedroom corner loft apartment is every hipster's dream! Live totally 'outside the box' in every way and wow your friends as they enter this one-of-a-kind space. Corinthian columns." Asking: $7,000/month.
