The late celebrity chef lived in the Upper West Side rental pad for $13,000 per month for two years up until his passing in June 2018, when he died by suicide at the age of 61. Two months after his death, the apartment was back up for rent at $14,200 per month. Now the unit is available to rent again, with a lower asking price of $12,000 per month.
Just a short walk away from Central Park, the modern apartment features two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and an expansive great room for dining and lounging. Each of the rooms has floor-to-ceiling windows that offer postcard views of Manhattan and the Hudson River. There’s also an updated kitchen with top-of-the-line stainless appliances and white marble countertops, a washer and dryer unit, and generous closet space.
Additionally, the doorman building has a gym, an indoor swimming pool, a residents’ lounge, a movie theater, a landscaped outdoor patio, and a private garage.
The Parts Unknown star—who is the subject of the upcoming, highly anticipated documentary Roadrunner (out July 16 on HBO Max)—also previously owned a luxurious four-bedroom condo on the Upper East Side with his ex-wife Ottavia Busia. The apartment was sold for $3.3 million about a year after his death.
