Best Defense Lawyer Ever Barry C. Scheck Buys In Chelsea

chelseagrand Best Defense Lawyer Ever Barry C. Scheck Buys In Chelsea

The Chelsea Grand: No Objections Here

There’s no public listing for the apartment that Barry C. Scheck just purchased at 270 West 17th Street,
but we’ll assume that the $745,000 that he paid for it was probably a very good price.

After all, if anyone was going to argue a price down, it would be Mr. Scheck, the defense attorney who helped win O.J. Simpson an acquittal and founded the Innocence Project with Peter Neufeld in 1992, a legal group that has exonerated more than 200 of the wrongly-convicted with DNA evidence.

Mr. Scheck and his wife Dorothy Rick, who currently live in Brooklyn Heights, purchased the condo from Justo Artigus. We’re not sure what the pad is like inside; we’d guess a one-bedroom, but heck, with Mr. Scheck’s negotiating skills, it could even be a two-bedroom. The 21-floor building boasts many balconies and outdoor spaces, uptwon and downtown views as well as wood floors and room-by-room-controlled HVAC systems.

Sounds like a nice place to map out the defense strategy for the next Innocence Project or high-profile defense case that Mr. Scheck takes on.

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
