Celebrities, Cool Listings, Noho

Marc Balet was the longtime art director for Andy Warhol’s Interview Magazine, as well as for his talk show 15 Minutes that aired on MTV from 1985 to 1987. Around this same time, in the late ’80s, he purchased a three-floor loft at 620 Broadway in Noho that was used as a dance studio. He transformed it into a beautiful, light-filled live-work home, even calling on his friend Fran Lebowitz to have her father, who owned a furniture store, create custom curtains for the 17-foot-tall space. The window treatments remain today, as do many other personal mementos, including lava lamps gifted by Pee-Wee Herman and a huge wall of celebrity photographs. Balet has now decided to put the home on the market for $5,995,000 and considering it also has an incredible amount of outdoor space, it’s a place not to be missed.

Designed by prolific architect Emery Roth, Brooklyn Height’s St. George Tower was constructed in 1929 as part of the full-block St. George Hotel complex. The 30-story Art Deco tower at 111 Hicks Street was converted to 275 co-ops in 1984, leaving its east-facing apartments with views just as prolific. This three-bedroom duplex on the 22nd and 23rd floors has a 57-foot-long terrace that overlooks the entire Manhattan skyline, the Statue of Liberty, and the Brooklyn, Manhattan, and Verrazano bridges–views that are completely protected and enjoyed by every single room in the home.
