The home of Natalie Portman’s character in the 2010 film “Black Swan” has hit the market. While in the movie, the apartment is shown near 103rd Street, just north of the ballerina’s Lincoln Center workplace, in reality, the two-bedroom co-op is at 135 Eastern Parkway, across from the Brooklyn Museum in Prospect Heights. Asking $1,700,000, the classic six home radiates pre-war charm, with herringbone oak floors and high-beamed ceilings. As the New York Post reported, the Art Deco-style apartment building, known as the Turner Towers, was the childhood home of the late comedian Joan Rivers.

Situated on the 13th floor, the residence opens onto a spacious foyer adorned with well-maintained herringbone hardwood floors. Nearby is the efficient, windowed eat-in kitchen, equipped with stainless steel appliances, Caesarstone countertops, and more than enough storage for your culinary needs.

The kitchen flows into a spacious dining area, which can comfortably host up to eight people. The nicely sized room could easily become a third bedroom. Bonus perks include a south-facing exposure, letting in the warmth of natural light and offering views of the Brooklyn Museum.

Two large bedrooms have spacious layouts, large windows, and plenty of closet space. The primary bedroom features a recently renovated ensuite bathroom with subway tile, a pedestal sink, a recessed medicine cabinet, and an original cast iron tub that was recently reglazed.

The second bathroom, located in the hallway, includes a separate stall shower, black and white floor tiles, and an original six-foot cast iron soaking tub.

A maid’s room can be used as a guest room or home office; a washer and dryer unit can be installed with board approval.

Constructed in 1926, Turner Towers features a ballroom-sized marble lobby, bike storage room, basement storage, a shared laundry room, a gym equipped with Peloton bikes, and a landscaped tea garden.

The closest subway lines include the 2 and 3 trains across the street as well as the 4, 5, B, and Q lines a little further away. The Brooklyn Botanic Garden, Brooklyn Museum, Brooklyn Public Library, and public green space at Mount Prospect Park and Prospect Park are all moments from the building’s front door.
