Features

In October 2022, a number of New York City apartments and townhouses linked to stars of stage, screen, business, and sports came on the market. In some cases, the luminary themself is deceased and their estate has listed the unit. In others, changes in work or circumstance necessitated the move. Stars - they're just like us (but with cooler real estate)!

Central Park West condos
Upper West Side condos
Artists of all stripes have long been inspired by the Upper West Side, and political cartoonist Ranan Lurie was one of them. The Guinness World Record-holder’s art was on display in the listing photos for his art studio in Deutsche Bank Center, and he also bought an apartment at 15 Central Park West from the sponsor. The art studio sold for $4.2 million shortly before his death in June 2022, and his estate has listed the apartment at 15 Central Park West. His artistic talent also applied to interior design - in a statement to Crain’s New York Business, his daughter and listing agent Danielle Lurie said, “While the original layout was sectioned off with walls, my father replaced all the walls in the east wing of the home with glass so that you essentially step into Central Park immediately upon entering.”

From the Listing:
To enhance the wonder of its panoramic views, the owners created a design elevation by replacing the original interior walls of the great wing with panels of glass. Breathtaking views of the whole of Central Park framed by the glinting towers of Billionaire’s Row, the grand cultural institutions of 5th Avenue, and the far northern reaches of the Central Park Reservoir and Ramble now spread before the eye in splendor from the moment you walk in, making 36D an absolutely unique offering among the vaunted D line homes. Throughout the home, grandeur is balanced with intimacy. With 11’ ceilings and graceful proportions, a sense of composition pervades. Distinct perspectives from the gallery, study, great room, dining room, and kitchen - each with its own view of Central Park - are framed by crown moldings and colonnades, giving old world shape to modern elegance.
15 Central Park West has 14 available listings from $6,395,000.
