As if New York City home prices, monthly rents and apartment sizes weren’t scary enough. Between the horrors of Airbnb, overpriced dorm-style “co-living,” super-expensive micro-apartments, and Donald Trump, it’s hard to imagine we’d need Halloween to scare ourselves silly.
But scare we do. Because of listings like these that know no season. Because sometimes real estate gets a little too real. From spookily dilapidated to eerily obscure to downright hideous, 6sqft has rounded up some of the most horrifying listings out there.
Be very afraid
You can live here!
Every day at 6sqft we pretty much find ourselves in awe saying “We can’t believe people live like this!” But every so often we come across a home that has us muttering “People live like this??” In celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, we’ve rounded up six spooky and scary Manhattan and Brooklyn residences. One is filled to the brim with dead animals, another hides a secret underground portal, and another harbors an incredible tale of murder and deceit. Jump ahead to see all six them all—and if you’d ever dare live in one of these petrifying pads, you’re in luck because several of these homes are for sale. Lucky you?
For these homes, it’s Halloween year-round
