Former Viacom chief executive Tom Freston has apparently taken his townhouse at 57 East 66th Street off the market, according to the Wall Street Journal. He had listed the former Andy Warhol home in the spring for $38.5 million, only to chop that asking price to $35 million.
Mr. Freston, according to a 2000 Observer article, bought the neoclassical townhouse for $6.5 million, moving there from a Tribeca penthouse after about $100,000 worth of renovations.
Warhol lived in the townhouse from 1974 (after paying $310,000 for it!) until his death in 1987.
