The townhouse at 40 Riverside Drive has two claims to fame: it was designed by architect Clarence True, and Marc Chagall once lived there (one of his several NYC abodes). Unfortunately, neither of these things was enough to sell the property at either of the asking prices it tried, $20 million or $17 million. Such is life. And now there's the chance to live there for cheap(er). It's been split into two listings, asking $8.475 million for the lower floors and $6.475 million for the upper floors. Things we like about these units: each one has a library, and the turret creates a neat rounded space.
Here are the floorplans for 40 Riverside's two units:
