About one year ago 6sqft reported that funny woman Rachel Dratch snatched up a somewhat bland two-bedroom at 230 East 15th Street in Gramercy. While we imagined that Dratch would transform the space into quirky quarters to match her equally vibrant personality, as it turns out, Dratch has long been the owner of another similar but smaller unit in the building with a shared aesthetic. According to city records, the comedienne just shed the one-bedroom property for $925,000.
230 East 15th Street
Actress, comedian, producer and writer Rachel Dratch is one of the least serious people in showbiz, so it’s surprising that her latest real estate purchase is such a bore. The SNL alum picked up a $1.65 million co-op at 230 East 15th Street in Gramercy, according to city records released today. Depressing decor and utilitarian vibes aside, the two-bedroom spread does overlook the picturesque Stuyvesant Park and offer a decent amount of space. Plus, the neighborhood is a lot more low-key than celeb hotspots like Tribeca or Central Park West.
