Clinton Street is the East-of-Broad Delancey–pretty and historic, narrow and shaded by trees. It runs for two blocks between Ninth and 11th, and Spruce and Pine. Rentals are very hard to come by on Clinton. Why would anyone on one of the city’s best streets in one of the city’s best neighborhoods ever want to move? And why would anyone in this exquisite townhouse with its luscious marble bathroom want to get out of the tub?
Well, who knows, but let’s not look a gift horse in the mouth. This mid-19th-century home in Washington Square West retains all kinds of delicious period details, including stained glass, marble fireplaces, marble mantels, antique light fixtures and original wood floors. But all the modern conveniences are there, including a Viking six-burner range, a seamless shower stall and a gated parking spot.
