The Stunning West Village Carriage House With A Checkered Past

The New York Times reports that this West Village carriage house was owned by Calvin Demarest, an international billiards champion. It was used as a stable and coachmen's quarters in the early 1900s. When Demarest attacked his wife with a pocketknife and tried to kill himself in, he was admitted to a sanitarium. The home was converted into a garage, and then bought by artist Jim Dine in 1997. It's now on the market for $9.1 million.
