Funky Soho Apartment from ‘The Devil Wears Prada’ Keeps Trying

The Soho apartment that made a cameo appearance in the film “The Devil Wears Prada” is trying its luck again on the market. Back in 2012, the unit, #3A at 56 Crosby Street, hit the market for $5.2 million and for $23,000 a month after it was on and off the market in 2009 and 2010 with an ask of $4.495 million. It looks as if it never sold. Now? It’s trying its luck as a rental and again asking $23,000 a month. Star power hasn’t helped this listing before, do you think this time around it’ll be different?

This is a two-bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom loft that spans 3,700 square feet. In all of that space you’ve got exposed brick, Corinthian columns and oversized windows. The 13-foot ceilings open up the open living room/dining room/kitchen even more.

The main room is distinguished by a custom-designed, stacked wood fireplace, as well as plenty of custom lighting. “Stacking” a fireplace all the way to the ceiling is one way to show off that 13-foot height! And we’ve gotta ask: what’s with the patch of astroturf carpet?

The kitchen has plenty of industrial-looking storage, fancy appliances and custom butcher block counter tops. One big perk of living in a 3,700-square-foot apartment: enough space to own two different sets of dining room chairs.

And here’s the master bedroom, just as big and sprawling as the rest of the apartment. It’s equipped with a custom-designed walk-in closet and what the listing calls a “spa-like” bathroom with marble counter tops and a soaking tub. Do you think this apartment has as much style as the movie that filmed here? It certainly doesn’t hurt that it’s located in the heart of Soho’s Cast Iron Historic District and within walking distance to the many, many posh boutiques of the neighborhood.

    Not two sets of chairs: this is not the same picture, they have changed the chairs. What a ridiculous comment
