The building has quite the celebrity cachet. Rolling Stones guitar player Keith Richards listed his own four-bedroom apartment at the same building for $12.2 million last week. TV Sitcom Director James Burrows (known for “Cheers,” “Frasier,” “Will & Grace,” and “Friends”) is also a neighbor. He and his wife, hairstylist Debbie Easton, bought a one-bedroom apartment for $4.2 million last year.
