Artists' Quirky Lower East Side House Seeks Summer Tenant

New, 6 comments

Although its ground floor is now occupied by a cafe, the townhouse at 511 Grand Street on the Lower East Side still has a lot of the charm, and many of the weird angles, that originated when it was built in 1829. Now the home of artists Steve Mumford, whose painted depictions of the Iraq War can often be seen at Postmasters, and Inka Essenhigh, the two-bed, two-bath townhouse is available as a summer rental for $4,250 per month, or an even $8,000 through Labor Day. Because it's a summer rental, the apartment comes furnished, along with the couple's "cultural artifacts," which appears to include the backyard grill.
