Full disclosure: One of your SPIN editors and Lady Gaga once shared the same landlord. And now those New York City property owners are renting Gaga's former Lower East Side apartment — at market rate! As Jezebel points out, real estate brokers Citi Habitats have listed the 176 Stanton Street apartment for $1,850, which, sadly, is what one-bedrooms in non-doorman buildings are going for these days. The description even comes with a photo of stylist Emily Ting, the girl who famously didn't let Gaga and Anderson Cooper in when they tried to tour the place for a 60 Minutes segment because she was home sick with the flu.
The full listing reads:
Phenominal 1br in the LES!! Former abode of the infamous Lady Gaga--legitimately! Sporting french doors, a marble bath, and a spacious floor-plan, you're a hop-skip-n-jump from the trains and steps from the hottest nightlife in NYC. Give me a call today to check out this, or anything else you may see on the Citi website. Thank you!!
Here's the inside scoop on the place: It's a third-floor walk-up, pets are allowed, and the adorable cannoli shop next door recently closed down, which is a bummer. But the hot meatball spot is just a few blocks away, the even hotter brunch restaurant Clinton Street Baking Company is literally footsteps from the door, and the building super is really kind.
