Although he’s invested in brand new Chelsea condo, Ricky Van Veen still has to sell his old place in the West Village. Mr. Van Veen surely has fond memories of his former digs from whence he launched his much documented foraging expeditions. All good things must ultimately be sold, however, including (and maybe especially) N.Y.U.-adjacent bachelor pads.
College Humor founder Ricky Van Veen is known for his love of West Village restaurants. The comedian turned rising media mogul will have to soon refine his palate, as the funny man has moved uptown. Well, to Chelsea, anyways.
Ricky, nee Richard Raphael Van Veen (no, that is not a joke), just bought a $2.45 million condo, according to city records. The two-bedroom, two-bath place is located in tony development The Campiello Collection on West 17th Street, a surprisingly conventional choice for the comedic wunderkind.
