There’s a lot of perks to being spectacularly prosperous but one of the rarest megabucks moments of all time has to go to the folks who purchased an 8M loft in Tribeca only to discover that it contained an original Keith Haring mural near its private elevator entrance.  

While this may seem like an entirely IMPOSSIBLE event at first, with a little art nerd digging, you can see how it all fits together.

The mural’s home at 260 West Broadway in Manhattan, a former thread factory, also used to be a gallery for the School Of Visual Arts, where Haring was a student in the late ’70s. It was painted for a group show in 1978 and somehow managed to survive, despite being located near a water pipe.

“It was like discovering an Egyptian tomb,” said the architect who found the piece while renovating the owners’ coat closet.

Why settle for visiting Haring’s Pop Shop when you could live in his Pop House?
