Ready to throw down $29.75 million for a Manhattan apartment?
Film producer Bob Weinstein lists his 14-room duplex, which boasts a priceless New York view.
Writing all these posts about fancy New York City apartments makes me only want to ever go to New York if I actually get to walk through a few of them.
Add film producer Bob Weinstein, of The Weinstein Co., to the list of multimillion-dollar apartment dwellers putting their homes up for sale. According to a post on WSJ.com's Developments blog:
The 14-room cooperative duplex, on Central Park West, has six bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a powder room. There’s also a formal dining room, a library, two terraces and three fireplaces. The home comes with views of Central Park and the Natural History Museum. The apartment is in The Beresford, a triple-towered classical-style building, constructed in 1929, at 211 Central Park West on New York’s Upper West Side.
That's not the kind of "apartment" this suburban Seattle native is used to, especially at an asking price of $29.75 million. But if I just remind myself that this apartment is in Manhattan, which is among the 30 most expensive cities in the world, it all begins to become (a little) more clear.
By the way, there's no need to worry about where Weinstein will be living. Apparently, he has his bases covered after recently buying a $15 million townhouse nearby. It's 20 feet wide. Now that's more along the lines of the kind of apartments/townhouses I'm used to.
