An apartment owned by the late Stanley Bard — who once co-owned the bohemian sanctuary, the Chelsea Hotel — has just hit the market asking $5.8 million. And his co-op isn’t located anywhere near Chelsea. Bard live on Fifth Avenue.
The New York Post first got wind of the listing at 1001 Fifth Avenue, which is with Maria Manuche and Lili Shiota of Compass. The 2,000-square-foot pad has three bedrooms and three bathrooms, with views of Central Park and the reservoir. There’s also a wood-burning fireplace, a built-in sound system and a “spa-like” master bathroom. Bard and his wife, Phyllis, paid $4.5 million for the unit in 2012.
Bard was a part-owner of the Chelsea Hotel for more than 40 years until he was forced out in 2007. During his time as manager of the hotel, the likes of Bob Dylan, Jack Kerouac, Arthur Miller, Larry Rivers, Christo and Jeanne-Claude, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen and Dylan Thomas (who drank himself to death in the hotel) lived there. He died in February of this year after a stroke.
Artwork of Bard’s is scheduled to go up for auction at Freeman’s in May.
