This Union Square apartment has certainly seen its fair share of scandal. Notorious former Congressman Anthony Weiner, along with wife and Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin, moved into the duplex rental at Zeckendorf Towers in November 2014, just after his failed mayoral run and sexting scandal. And now that Abedin filed for divorce (nearly nine years since the couple announced their separation) after Weiner pled guilty to sending sexual text messages to a minor, they may finally be parting ways with the contemporary home. Three days ago, the Post reported that the unit hit the market for $11,900 a month, but the listing has since been pulled, perhaps from the publicity or because it was rented.
The 1,500-square-foot unit is the combination of two one-bedrooms on the 14th/15th floors, resulting in a sprawling three-bedroom home with panoramic views of Union Square and Midtown. The floorplan is flexible, but in its current configuration, the second floor holds the living room and master bedroom.
Below, is the kitchen/dining room and two more bedrooms.
Weiner will be sentenced in September (a judge recommended 21 to 27 months) so at least he’s got the summer to find a renter…
