Is comedian Jon Stewart having second thoughts about parting with his West Village apartment?
The Observer reported in mid-May that the Daily Show anchor grabbed a 6,000-square-foot Tribeca loft for $5.8 million, through a corporate entity.
Shortly after that, he put his 2,240-square-foot, West Village pad on the market with Prudential Douglas Elliman for $3.995 million–if he got it, that’d be almost $1.4 million more than he paid for it in April 2002.
When initially listed, the apartment’s description stated that it could not be shown until May 23. (It takes time to pack up all those Emmys).
But recently, according to the company’s website, the owner’s request has now emphatically changed to the following: “Cannot be shown until further notice.”
Presumably, Mr. Stewart will have to start showing his former home, unless he desires to have a pied-à -terre less than two miles away.
