You can own the EC Comics Headquarters

Or at least a part of it!

 I thought I'd look and see whatever happened to the old EC Comics Building. Entertaining Comics was run out of 225 Lafayette Street (on the corner of Lafayette and Spring), NY NY Room 706.

Well turns out it has been turned into condos called The Spring - and you can own a 2 Bedroom, 2 bth place there for the mere price of $1,735,000!

Wonder if the inhabitants know this was the former site of the EC Grue Factory? If you buy a place there, (and I know you all have that kind of dough just lying around), tell em' Doc Gangrene sent ya' and ask for Room 706 - just be sure to let me come visit and see if the ghosts of comics past perhaps lurk in the building somewhere!

Realtor Info:

This building is two blocks north of the grandiose former Police Headquarters Building and was erected in 1927 for the East River Savings Bank and was designed by Cass Gilbert, the architect of the famous Woolworth Building facing City Hall Park.

The 14-story building has a three-story limestone base with very tall colonnades on both Lafayette and Spring Streets. Its corner is chamfered. The beige-brick building has a nice deep cornice and stringcourses at the third, fourth and 12th floors. A rooftop penthouse with a wrap-around terrace has been added. The building has 40 condominium apartments and 12,000-square feet of retail space.

The conversion was completed in 2004 and was undertaken by Africa Israel Investments, which is traded on the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange, and is involved in several ventures in New York City including the River Lofts facing the Hudson River at 92 Laight Street, 15 Broad Street, and 88 Leonard Street in Manhattan and the Empire Stores between the Brooklyn and Manhattan Bridges in Brooklyn facing the East River, 85 Adams Street, which is three blocks north from the Empire Stores, and 84 Front Street, also in the DUMBO section of Brooklyn.

This elegant building is convenient to the many restaurants and boutiques of SoHo and NoHo as well as Little Italy and Chinatown. It has no garage and no sidewalk landscaping.
