It's located on its own private alley
Great Jones Alley is currently in the midst of getting its very own luxury residential tower, but some quirky homes that are reminders of the neighborhood's past still remain in the area. To wit: This oddball live/work space at 3 Great Jones Street, which served as a horse stable in the 18th century, but has since been turned into a duplex loft "done in Le Corbusier style," per the listing. (Because of its spiral staircase? Or the generally modern feel of the place? We're not quite sure.)
It has two bedrooms and two bathrooms, which are split over the home's two levels; the lofted space also has an office overlooking the rest of the apartment. Other interesting details include original doors from its stable days, custom built-in shelving, and an entrance on a private alleyway. It was listed for $3.7 million in 2014, but has since gotten a slight chop—now, it could be yours for just $3 million.
