Music Man Hal Prince Strikes Again: 'Entertaining' Duplex Sells for $1.311 M.


This week’s Manhattan Transfers profiles the 78-year-old Broadway legend Hal Prince’s two big real-estate deals so far this year.

And yet another deed surfaced on Wednesday afternoon in public records. Late last month, Mr. Prince and son Charles sold their duplex at 222 Central Park South (called the Gainsborough Studios) for $1.311 million. The buyer is Donald W. Denton.

A snapshot above–which we ingeniously doubled–is taken from the listing with Coldwell Banker Hunt Kennedy broker Edward Joseph:

This artistic loft-like apartment has a 20 foot double height living room with beamed ceiling and oversized windows facing South. This grand living area with woodburning fireplace is perfect for entertaining and formal or relaxed dining. Both bedrooms are generous…

The elder Mr. Prince would be a good entertainer: His Broadway credits as a director and/or producer include Damn Yankees, West Side Story, Fiddler on the Roof, and Cabaret.
