The long-time Upper West Side home of the late comedy duo Jerry Stiller and Anne Meara has hit the market for the first time in more than 50 years, the New York Times first reported. The expanded co-op at 118 Riverside Drive is where they raised their children, actors Amy Stiller and Ben Stiller, as well as “wrote and collaborated on material and entertained a host of celebrities,” according to the Times. Stiller and Meara moved from Washington Heights into unit 5A in 1965 when the building was a rental (they paid $220/month) and purchased it when the building went co-op a few years later. In the early ’80s, they also bought unit 5B and combined them into the five-bedroom home that is now listed for $5 million.
