Retail Condo Listed for Sale in Circa-1887 808 Broadway

Adelaide Polsinelli, vice chairman of Compass, has been hired to sell a ground-floor, block-through, retail condominium at the base of 808 Broadway, also known as 104-110 Fourth Av., at the crossroads of Greenwich Village and the East Village. 

The property, with entrances on both avenues, is currently occupied by the New York Costume Halloween Adventure. Family owned and operated for over 65 years, it’s reportedly the world’s largest designer, manufacturer and distributor of Halloween costumes and accessories. 

“This exceptional retail condo offers generous 80’ frontage on Fourth Avenue and 40’ frontage on Broadway, making it ideal for multi-tenanted use as well as any combination of owner-user possibilities,” said Polsinelli. 

The building was constructed in 1887 by James Renwick Jr., who also designed the adjacent St. Patrick’s Cathedral. The present seven-story, block-through, Gothic revival style building was converted to residences in 1981 and renamed The Renwick, in honor of its architect.
