Acclaimed filmmaker Jonathan Demme, who won an Academy Award for directing “The Silence of the Lambs,” passed away in April. For at least 30 years prior, he resided at the grand Emery Roth-designed Central Park West co-op the Alden. According to city records, his longtime Upper West Side home has now sold for $2.4 million, after just 13 days on the market.
The two-bedroom home has nine windows facing the park so that every room has gorgeous views. It also boasts an open floorplan, “city quiet” windows, a laundry room, and an oversized master bedroom with a walk-in closet and en-suite bath.
Demme is also known for such films as “Married to the Mob,” “Philadelphia,” and “Rachel Getting Married,” as well as his activism for causes including Apartheid, Haiti’s dictatorship, and Hurricane Katrina. The buyers of his home are Robin and Alan Fuchsberg, a personal injury lawyer.
