Ellen Biddle Shipman Townhouse Grabs a Pretty Penny in NYC

Just $35 million!  What a steal! The New York Observer is reporting the Ellen Biddle Shipman Townhouse in New York's fashionable Beekman Place neighborhood was snapped up for a cool $35 million.  Shipman is credited with shaping the neighborhood into the exclusive hot spot it is today.  And get this... the closing price apparently set a city record for 20-foot wide townhouses, selling at a WHOPPING $4,844 per sq ft!

I don't expect to be moving in anytime soon.
