Like the Yankees before it, veteran shortstop Derek Jeter is ditching his West Village townhouse rental at 56 Bank Street, the Post reports. The small two-bedroom townhouse returned to the rental market for all of two weeks before it was snatched up by a moneyed sports fanatic for $22,995/month. Jeter's stay may be a boon for the townhouse owner, who's failed to sell the place and has inexplicably upped its ask several times over the past few years. The home, built in 1833 for the Reverend Joseph Carter, recently underwent a restoration but still has charming details like its original pineapple-motif stoop railings.
