The Bird Cage: Robin Williams Re-Tires to Rushmore Roost

Robin Williams will make his Broadway acting debut next month, in the highly anticipated Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo. Since the star sold his Manhattan home over a decade ago, he will need a new place to stay. Having struck out on Central Park West, Williams has landed on the other side of the Upper West Side, according to the Post, picking up a pad at Gary Barnett’s legally challenged Rushmore.

Jennifer Gould Keill reports that Williams is paying $15,000 a month for a four-bedroom spread that was until recently asking $4 million. Sounds a lot like a fourth-floor unit that just slipped off the market and is owned, according to StreetEasy, by Mauro Pessi, the head of Pirelli Tires’ North American operations, and his wife Elena Fraccaro. Care to take the place for a test drive?
