Street art meets real estate
The elusive street artist Alec Monopoly has left his mark on the inside of 400 West 12th Street: The 3K unit in the Manhattan condominium designed by Robert AM Stern comes with two commissioned Monopoly works – one painted on a door and the other on a marble counter.
The door features Mr. Monopoly from Hasbro with spray paint cans, while the counter, located next to the kitchen sink, sports a stylized Monopoly resin panel sealed in marble.
“It was the first opportunity I had to really integrate my art into a property,” Monopoly told AD PRO. “I loved the idea of having something artistic aesthetic but also of having the duality of being able to play Monopoly on it.”
The two-bed, three-bath home is now on the market for $ 4,950,000 with Brent Rogol by Douglas Elliman.

Prices for one, two and three bedroom homes start at $ 1.3 million, with construction expected to be completed by the end of the year.
