What's the story with the name The Story House? 36 East 22nd Street is the former home of Brit publishing house Frederick Warne & Company, most notably the publisher of Beatrix Potter (The Tale of Peter Rabbit), giving the condo conversion marketers a whimsical platform from which to start?"Now is the time to live out your own fairy tale..." Beatrix Potter notwithstanding, prospective buyers should have better credit than Old Mother Hubbard because this building is not a giant shoe. Instead, one can buy a 2,156 square foot, fifth floor 3BR/3BA condo for just under $3.4 million. It would be common for these huge windows to have limited appeal on the 5th floor, but this block on 22nd Street is fairly low-rise, and the building directly across the street is only five stories itself.
