Rent a $15K/Month Ice Cave?Um, Live/Work Space

New, 4 comments

Even with spring's belated arrival, maybe you're already anticipating how hot July will be. Maybe you're wondering how on earth you can find an apartment that will surround your humidity-fearing self with just the right "cool" vibe. Well, here's an option?an ultra-weird 2,400-square-foot duplex at 37 Walker Street that has already spent about five months on the rental market, complete with gleaming white rooms, an animal-skin rug, blingy chandeliers dripping with ice (not the literal kind), and a roaring, potentially fake fire in the sleek hearth.

Contemporary ski chalet meets Tribeca modernist tacky-chic? Igloo meets film screening venue? And then, of course, there's the exposed-brick wall, which is strikingly out of place. The brokerbabble labels it ideal for "a boutique business with the possibility for live/work" and emphasizes the "beautifully appointed bathrooms" both on the ground level and in the basement below. The previous tenant was a company called Esoteric, which installs iPad entertainments systems on private jets and yachts. Any takers for this, well, esoteric-looking fixer-upper? Just glass in the ground-floor windows before indulging in any Nordic rituals.... your neighbors will thank you.
