The estate of showbiz oldie Jerome Pickman has sold his apartment at 2 Sutton Place South. Pickman was a fixture in the film industry for decades, and worked on moves from Psycho to The Ten Commandments. He was a publicity manager at 20th Century Fox and was sales director at Paramount.
“It is a gem!,” boasts Sloane Square agent Susan Kane of Pickman’s former apartment in her listing. Hopefully the buyers, businessman and philanthropist Charles Crane and wife Leisa, like throwing dinner parties, as the apartment’s “center foyer…creates a great flow for entertaining,” Ms. Kane’s listing notes. Pair that with the sprawling views of the East River, and the apartment will surely be the envy of the Cranes’ friends.
According to a write-up of the building by architecture critic Carter Horsley, the building features a lobby garden and has a communal roof terrace available for all residents.
The two-bedroom, three-bath home was originally listed in February for $2.3 million, according to StreetEasy, but the price was increased to $2.35 million in April. The Cranes ended up paying $2.24 million for the home.
