Acclaimed actor Philip Seymour Hoffman, who tragically died from a drug overdose in February 2014, was a regular fixture in his West Village community, sitting out on his stoop, frequenting local coffee shops, and helping to establish the neighborhood’s LAByrinth Theater. He moved into his apartment at the Pickwick House, a former 19th century printing plant, in October 2013, after splitting from his wife. The unit first hit the market for $10,500 a month just a month after his passing, but even after dropping to $9,995, it couldn’t find a tenant. It’s now trying again reports the Post, asking $10,250 a month.
The 1,100-square-foot, two-bedroom corner condo has nine oversized windows, 10-foot original wood-beamed ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, strip oak floors, custom closets in both bedrooms, and radiant heated floors and towel racks in the bathrooms. The rental is available beginning September 1st.
