Leaving the Upper West Side, Seinfeld? No Soup for You!
As inconceivable as it sounds that Seinfeld would move crosstown -- would a zebra leave his stripes? -- we thought it our civic duty to remind the man who brought us the Soup Nazi and a show about nothing that there are plenty of apartments right in his 'hood, and he needn't go getting all uppity on us, especially when he could be master of any of these domains:
1. Be the king of this Central Park West castle for $25 million.
Built in 1887 by William Noble and architect Edward J. Angell, this 12,00-square-foot mansion (pictured above) is one of few remaining single residences on Central Park. Jerry, aren't you done with apartment life anyway? The parlor and living area have double-height ceilings and gallery-size walls for art. Lots of natural light coming into the great room. And it has a 60-foot freshwater lap pool, a state-of-the-art media room, five bedrooms, two offices, and a master suite with bow-front window seat, dressing area, spa bath and terrace. It's been on the market for more than a year and the price was reduced in the spring by $4 million. That's a seller blinking, Jerry; get on the horn.
2. Be the lord of this San Remo manor for $24.75 million.
Smallish at 6,000 square feet, but you're in one of New York's best West Side buildings. The extraordinary original residence, with 10 windows facing the park, was combined with a neighboring apartment to create this tremendously unique space with superb flow. Six bedrooms, six bathrooms, two powder rooms, a media room, library, study, office, laundry, and a corner living room with park views, central air, and a fireplace. The San Remo (c.1930), designed by Emery Roth, was the first twin-towered building of the city. Kind of the Grand Dame of the West Side with lots of building amenities.
3. Not that there's anything wrong with Riverside Drive at $20 million.
This 12,000-square-foot mansion was built in 1909 by William Tuthill, the same architect who designed Carnegie Hall, and is the only free-standing single-family mansion in Manhattan. It may be a little over-the-top French Renaissance frilly with all the white marble and bronze grills, but there are great views of the Hudson River. Could be fun to live in a European palazzo for a while.
