The Rollings Stones, or so the rumor perpetuated by the Greenwich Village townhouse's owner goes, lived at 54 West 9th Street early in their careers and wrote such hits as "Sympathy for the Devil" and "Paint it Black." This maybe/maybe not true bit of history didn't help owner Stefan Peter when he tried to sell the townhouse back in 2012 for $7.95 million, however. Now the townhouse is back on the market and Peter has abandoned the the Rolling Stones thing and is instead trying to entice buyers with very loose plans to convert the building into a single-family home.

Also, he's raised the price to $12.95 million.
