Liza Minnelli Is Not the Only Star Leaving Her New York City Residence



Liza Minnelli is not the only star who is leaving her New York City residence.The cabaret’s footlights have dimmed, old chum—at least for longtime New York resident Liza Minnelli, who has decamped for Los Angeles. The legendary performer had lived at the Imperial House, a nondescript white-brick co-op on 69th Street east (gasp!) of Lexington since the dawn of disco. Her 21st-floor pad sold in an off-market deal for $8.4 million. Speaking of imperial residences, former Law & Order: SVU star Christopher Meloni finally found a buyer for his 2,977-square-foot Park Imperial condo at 230 West 56th Street, which had lingered on the market for three years and undergone $3 million in price reductions. (At one point, Meloni even offered to throw in a free Porsche upon the pad’s sale.) The actor purchased the apartment in 2005 for $5.45 million and listed it in 2012 for $12 million; it was most recently on the market for $8.95 million with Halstead’s Brian Lewis. The late Joan Rivers’s penthouse at One East 62nd Street sold in September for its asking price of $28 million. The buyer: Saudi Arabian prince Muhammad bin Fahd, who has already gutted the apartment’s Versailles-like decor. Tennis-star sisters Venus and Serena Williams won at least one grand slam this fall: They sold a jointly owned condo at 28 West 38th Street for a tidy $2.1 million, having picked up the 1,800-square-foot one-bedroom ten years ago for $1.335 million. Reclusive Oscar nominee Debra Winger and True Blood star Arliss Howard have plunked down $1.85 million for a 1,700-square-foot, two-bedroom co-op at 300 West 109th Street, while Winger’s equally husky-voiced contemporary, Body Heat actress Kathleen Turner, has unloaded her 2,000-square-foot, three-bedroom condo at 200 Riverside Boulevard for a cool $3.8 million (she was recently spotted checking out an apartment at 100 Norfolk Street on the Lower East Side). And Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale are Brooklyn-bound, having just bought a $2.2 million two-family house at 453 Warren Street in Boerum Hill.
