55 Thompson's days as the Tunnel Garage—New York's first indoor parking garage—are long gone, and in place of roadsters it's housing the 1% of New York's rental elite. Take, for example, the townhouse unit, which the Post reports caught Jessica Simpson's eye. The singer-slash-famous-person toured the $25,000-a-month, three-bedroom, 3 1/2-bathroom rental but lo and behold, it was scooped up by a mystery renter before she could decide. The horror! According the StreetEasy, the unit was on the market for a whopping 11 days.
