Rodents be damned–despite being sued by their condo board for an alleged bedbug and rat infestation last year, “This American Life” host Ira Glass and his wife Anaheed Alani have sold their renovated Chelsea apartment at 159 West 24th Street for $1.65 million. They bought the apartment in 2012 for $1,265,000 and put it on the market this past November for $1.75 million, with the listing stating that the home was “unoccupied.”
159 West 24th Street
A year after he and his wife Anaheed Alani were sued by their condo board for an alleged bedbug and rats infestation, “This American Life” host Ira Glass has put his Chelsea home on the market for $1.75 million. Perhaps the rodent drama got to be too much, as the listing states that the one-bedroom apartment at 159 West 24th Street is “newly gut renovated and unoccupied.”
Act one: A case of we said, they said, and the bedbugs at the center of it all.
According to The Post, “This American Life” host Ira Glass and his wife Anaheed Alani are being sued by their 159 West 24th Street condo board for allowing bedbugs and rats to take hold of their home. The complaint was filed Thursday in the Manhattan Supreme Court and alleges that couple’s neglect has created “unsanitary conditions” that have affected the entire building.
