Remember David Blaine –the magician who’s pulled stunts like encasing himself in a block of ice for over 63 hours and sealing himself inside a plexiglass case for 44 days with no food? Well, apparently after all these wild endeavors he needed a nice, tranquil place to come home to. The Observer reports that Brooklyn-born Blaine has put his modern/cool Greenwich Village apartment on the market for $2.27 million. He bought the top-floor, corner two-bedroom unit at 41 Fifth Avenue back in 1998, just as he was gaining worldwide fame. And though he moved to Tribeca several years later, he’s held onto the unit until now.
Located in a classic Rosario Candela-designed building, the apartment has incredible views from north, south, and east exposures. The living room has black onyx floors and a wood-burning fireplace. The kitchen has granite countertops and off this room is a washer/dryer. Both bedrooms are spacious and have plenty of storage.
