Before the stretch became known as Billionaires’ Row, Al Pacino called 301 West 57th Street home. The Oscar-winning actor, best known for his roles in “Scarface” and “The Godfather,” lived in different units in the building between 1988, when the building was built, and 2013, including a 14-floor corner condo that just hit the market for $2.7 million, reports the Post.
The two-bedroom pad has northern and eastern views, looking out to Central Park. The corner layout is considered the best in the building, with walls of windows stretching from the living room to the open dining area with its bay windows. There’s also a windowed kitchen and a master suite with large closets and an en-suite bath.
The 56-story building, known as Central Park Place, was a celebrity magnet right from the beginning, as it was considered one of the most exclusive and expensive buildings in the city. Other big-name residents include Goldie Hawn and business exec Rob Glaser.
