Prospect Heights pre-war co-op seen in ‘Black Swan’ lists for $1.7M

The home of Natalie Portman's character in the 2010 film "Black Swan" has hit the market. While in the movie, the apartment is shown near 103rd Street, just north of the ballerina's Lincoln Center workplace, in reality, the two-bedroom co-op is at 135 Eastern Parkway, across from the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Heights. Asking $1,700,000, the classic six home radiates pre-war charm, with herringbone oak floors and high-beamed ceilings. As the New York Post reported, the Art Deco-style apartment building, known as the Turner Towers, was the childhood home of the late comedian Joan Rivers.

Bought for Just $7,600 in the ’70s, Prospect Heights Co-op Returns 43 Years Later for $2.15M

In the statuesque Art Deco-style Turner Towers co-op along what’s arguably the most picturesque stretch of the grand Olmsted and Vaux-designed boulevard in Prospect Heights, this sprawling four-bedroom residence at 135 Eastern Parkway has been a family home for 43 years. The current owner moved to–and fell in love with–the neighborhood in the early ‘70s, when it was on the cusp of far darker times. How she came to acquire the spacious 14th-floor apartment, with unobstructed views over the treetops, the park and to the Verrazano Bridge and beyond, for $7,600 (nope, that’s not a typo) is a classic New York story.
