Full house? “Power of Half” author lists UWS apartment for $1.6M

Kevin Salwen, the bestselling author of the 2010 book, “The Power of Half: One Family’s Decision to Stop Taking and Start Giving Back,” has just listed his Upper West Side apartment at 425 Central Park West for $1.6 million.

In the book, Salwen and his daughter Hannah wrote about how they decided to donate nearly half of the proceeds from the sale of their $2 million home in Atlanta, Georgia to the charity, The Hunger Project, and then moved into a smaller house.

Salwen told LLNYC that while his family is known for “occasionally doing insane things,” it is “not likely” he will be donating half of the proceeds from this apartment’s sale to charity. Since selling their home in 2010, however, he says he and his wife have now donated about 90 percent of the proceeds from that sale to the Hunger Project. They also do work for the Boys and Girls Club, Year Up and Habitat for Humanity.

“We think the idea of supporting the working poor as they are trying to make brighter futures for themselves is a great thing to do,” he said.

He and his wife, Joan, are selling this apartment because they became teaching fellows at Stanford and find that they don’t need it. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo has Central Park views, a marble bathroom, hardwood floors and high ceilings. Cathleen Carmody and Joseph Guzzo of Corcoran have the listing.
