When rapper Biz Markie toured this house as a part of Celebrity House Hunting in the beginning of the year he said it was the one he wanted. But then...nothing. At that time it was asking $3.19M but shortly thereafter commenced an elaborate delist-relist dance as it lowered its price. After several price chops it sold for $2,275,000 at the end of August. After the jump is a clip from the show where Mr Markie drops some dope one-liners about not only this house, but the contemporary near Dupont (with a red telephone booth elevator) and a condo in The Moderno.
