David LaChapelle’s Very Literal Apartment Trade: $1.68 M

New York ObserverJuly 06, 2011

Warhol protégée David LaChapelle has officially sold his New York digs. The artist’s Lower East Side pied-à-terre at 170 Second Avenue has traded after at least two years on the market to an unnamed buyer for $1.68 million, according to city records.

 

The 1,350-square-foot apartment has two bedrooms and two bathrooms.  Newly renovated by Mr. La Chapelle, it also features dark wood floors and crystal doorknobs.

 

Famed for his surrealist portraiture, Mr. LaChapelle has worked with a host of celebrities and currently has an exhibition, “From Darkness to Light,” at Aby Rosen’s Lever House.

 

According to a 2009 property listing by Jason Walker of Douglas Elliman, the apartment is a “CELEBRITY lair was beautifully restored to accentuate breathtaking VIEWS (including the Empire State Building and the Chrysler Building) and classic pre-war CHARM” [emphasis credited to the enthusiastic Mr. Walker].

Buy From the Belz

New York MagazineJuly 03, 2011

Think of Richard Belzer, the perpetually black-clad comic who played the perpetually black-clad Detective John Munch in Law & Order, and you do not automatically picture him living blissfully in a villa in the south of France. Yet Belzer has spent much of the past few years doing just that, and he and his wife are shrinking their New York footprint, putting their apartment at 60 Riverside Drive on the market. It’s a combination unit (adding up to four bedrooms and three and a half baths) that’s priced at $2.9 million through Prudential Douglas Elliman’s Arthur Korant and Harry Kendrick. “When people think of New York, they think of traffic and buildings,” Belzer says, “but this apartment is more idyllic,” with water and tree-line views that are “sheer visual poetry.” Of course, Belzer—who has lived on the Upper West Side since the seventies—is not giving up New York for good; he says his dogs, Django and Bebe, wouldn’t hear of it. He’s looking at smaller units in the building.
