The Time Warner Center condo at 25 Columbus Circle that Ranan Lurie, who holds the Guinness World Record for most syndicated political cartoonist, used as his art studio and office, is now on the market for $4,995,000. Lurie’s “Uniting Painting” at the United Nations HQ is the largest contemporary painting ever exhibited there. The founder and Editor-in-Chief of Cartoonews has been the resident political cartoonist for, among many others, Life magazine, The U.S. News & World Report, Time International, Foreign Affairs magazine and The London Times. He has been syndicated globally to more than 1,100 publications with a daily readership of 300 million. His drawings often include a small trademark smiling sun drawn on the subject’s tie or other articles of clothing.
The 1,433-square-foot corner unit just steps from Central Park has amazing city and Hudson River views. The condo features two bedrooms, 10-foot ceilings, and southern and western exposures throughout.
A spacious entry foyer opens into a glamorous great room that incorporates living, dining, and entertaining in style. Adjacent to this space, a gorgeous marble-clad galley kitchen is fitted with high-end appliances and top-of-the-line finishes.
Both the master and additional bedrooms have en-suite baths. Both are spacious, sunny and offer breathtaking views. The residence offers lots of closet space and a washer/dryer hookup along with many other modern conveniences.
Should you visit the apartment while it’s being shown, the views may not be the only thing that brings a smile to your face. Lurie’s drawings and the aforementioned painting (he’s pictured here with his daughter, who’s one of the listing brokers) will be on display along with photos of some world leaders that he interviewed and painted.
The Time Warner Center is an iconic, amenity-filled building that offers 24-hour doormen, a valet-attended parking garage, a windowed 75-foot lap swimming pool, a screening room, conference room, children’s playroom, exquisite roof deck with Hudson views and a state-of-the-art fitness center with views of Central Park.
