40th Anniversary



There’s no clearer sign that the Village’s bohemian salad days are ending. The 26-foot-wide, three-story carriage house at 50 West 10th Street, long occupied by artistes, has been the home of Edward Albee (pictured) since 1965 (he bought it from actor Maurice Evans). As the Times recently reported, he’s cashing out and moving uptown, perhaps buoyed by the continuing income from Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? And who’s moving in but Broadway’s Jerry Herman, spending his bonanza from Hello, Dolly! and Mame. More interesting than the change in neighborhood character, though, is the price. Albee paid Evans $120,000; three years later, the asking price is $210,000.
