A corner of the Internet exploded when a beloved and elusive rooftop cottage at East 13th Street and Third Avenue came onto the market in June. "I have dreamed of this place for absolute YEARS!," Curbed commenter Daily Dimmick wrote when the listing first appeared, availing the penthouse's lovely, brick-heavy interiors for the first time in who knows how long. And just like that, the listing has disappeared again. Just 19 days after the penthousemore Montauk than East Villageappeared for $4.4 million, it went into contract. When reached for comment, Corcoran listing broker Tamir Shemesh couldn't give up what the three-bedroom pad is selling for, only that it's "going for a very good price" and that "both the seller and buyer are very happy." We'd be happy, too, if those were our new digs.
