Yes You Can, Can, Can Once Again On Broadway
Perhaps it’s simply a fat finger error, but as a plugged-in reader notes, the "Can, Can, Can" home at 1805 Broadway which was on the market in 2009 asking $4,859,900 before quickly being reduced and withdrawn and then relisted for two weeks earlier this year at $4,199,000 has returned to the MLS listed as "1801" Broadway with a $3,999,000 price.
Purchased from the Feinstein family for $3,400,000 in November of 2006 and then remodeled in 2008, the property remains available for rent asking $18,500 a month and listed a little more liberally on craigslist at 5,000 square feet with seven bedrooms as it was in 2009 as well.
The inspiration for a reader's "can, can, can" line:
UPDATE: And as the kitchen looked circa 2006:
∙ Listing: "1801" Broadway (6/6.5) 4,400 sqft - $3,999,000 [MLS]
∙ You Can, Can, Can (And A Grand Reduction) At 1805 Broadway [SocketSite]
∙ $18500 / 7br - Prime, Outst 7bd, 6bth Vict single family [Craigslist]

Wow, the "before" kitchen is only slightly less atrocious than the after. Money and poor taste never mix well.

Why is there a couch pushed up against the kitchen island? That looks ridiculous. Nothing like getting food in your guests' hair while you're preparing their dinner.
Someone better get a competent stager in there.

That old kitchen is hysterical for a house this sized. Why so small? Did the family eat out all the time or something? It is hard to imagine throwing something like a dinner party out of this small space.
The new space is at least large enough, though the colors are kind of peculiar.

How can that be the same kitchen? What, did they move it to a different room?
