The beachy loft on the top floor of 46 Carmine Street should have landmark status for all of the history that it has seen. Once owned by dueler and Vice President Aaron Burr (he def killed Alexander Hamilton in a duel. Like, for real), the 800 square foot one-bedroom was also home to the volatile/reclusive/alcoholic artist Jackson Pollock.

Now in contract after being listed twice in the last two years, this loft-style apartment was asking $1.25M, which is down $145K from the last time it was listed for $1.395M.

Could it be the the fact that it is a top-floor walkup that keeps the turnover rates high? What this sweet little space DOES have is slanted ceilings, a massive skylight, and an incredible Greenwich Village address.

What do you think, move in or move on?
