Belafonte Apt. Splits in Half


A few weeks ago, Harry Belafonte told The Observer that he needed to “pare down” his life–and had become even more eager to sell his 21-room, West End Avenue co-op (which first listed for $15 million).

After the Corcoran Group grabbed the listing from Prudential Douglas Elliman, the price dropped to $11.75 million. But now there’s another choice for wealthy buyers: you can buy half of it for either $6.1 or $5.65 million.

Considering that the full-floor spread was originally two units, the split makes sense. However, the $11.75 million price still exists for the buyer that wants both the A and B lines together–to live as the Belafonte family (and friends) did for the past 46 years.
