Upper West Side Penthouse Comes with Egg-Laying Chickens

New, 7 comments

This duplex penthouse atop Upper West Side condo building 259 West 85th Street, just listed for $1.195 million, would be a highly attractive apartment even if it didn't include the two-level terrace with an urban farm and a chicken coop with two egg-laying chickens, named Fricassee and Marsala. The owners—the one with the chickens describes himself to the Daily News as "the country mouse that married the city mouse"—are getting out of the city, and their place is up for sale, chickens and all.
