The life of the bohemian

desartistes The life of the bohemian… never had so much mahogany! One of those super-rare duplex apartments (with penthouse and studio) has just opened up at the Hotel des Artistes, a really old-school co-op at 1 West 67th Street. It’s listing for about $4.6 million.

Architect George Mort Pollard designed the Gothic-style building, which was finally completed in 1917.

Since then, the famous building has housed many noteworthy artists and writers; including, painter Norman Rockwell, director Mike Nichols, writer Fannie Hurst, director Alan Crosland, playwright Noel Coward, and writer and critic Irving Howe.

It is currently listed with brokers Carol Opton and Dan Douglas of the Corcoran Group.
