The second floor of 295 East 8th Street, on Avenue B facing Tompkins Square Park, returned to market this week after renting last year. The two previous tenants each rented for just one year, and at this price, in this neighborhood, with no doorman and stairs up to the lofty pad, it's no wonder renter's remorse is so commonplace. Currently asking $9,000 per month—a $100 premium over the last outing—the loft does have a few virtues, like 18-foot ceilings, two exposures, 12-foot windows, and 2,300 square feet. Plus, there's a little, tiny, itty bit of celebrity history attached: Matt Dillon allegedly lives (or lived) in the same building. But wait, aren't we forgetting something? Oh, yes, that's right, this loft has a "STAGE - a ceremonial platform from the early 1900's, today an especially dramatic place for living\dining\display." Calling all rich thespians.
