Magician's House Hoping for $6.25 Million Card Trick

New, 4 comments

62 Jane Street is one of five Greek Revival homes built in 1848 by old-timey developer and mason Stacey Pitcher, and now it's on the market for $6,250,000. Exterior details look a little spiffier than its neighbors' ("with artful design of the ironwork of the hand railings at the stoops, 62 Jane retains its original wrought iron areaway railing with modified Greek Revival fret design at the base and much of its original detail throughout") and it's a respectable 3,192 square feet, though we suspect whoever buys the pile will be updating it à la 2011. (It's been on and off the market since 2008 at $8 million on down.)

The most fun fact about 62 Jane, though? It was the residence of the Lower East Side born-and-bred Harry Lorayne, a television-circuit magician and "memory specialist" who authored a bestseller on mnemonics.
