This had been the Hawley & Hoops candy factory, and was converted to condos in the 1990s. All of the information in this posting is from the New York Times, 3/8/15, at p. RE 2. It is not clear precisely when various people lived in condos here, but the list includes David Bowie and his wife Iman, Courtney Love (wife of the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana), Lachlan and Sarah Murdoch, actor Saul Rubinek, and hotelier Ian Schrager. Unit 2B is for sale by Mitch Alfus, aka the Leather King, the owner of Libra Leather.
