Art gallerist nabs $4M Brooklyn penthouse

Marc Benda, the co-founder of Chelsea’s Friedman Benda gallery, has just bought himself his own work of art: a $4 million Brooklyn penthouse, city records show.

His new pad at The Boerum in Boerum Hill, is one of four penthouses at the new development. It comes with four bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms, large windows and views across Brooklyn and Downtown Manhattan from its almost 1,200-square-foot private roof terrace.

According to its listing, the residence’s “most striking feature” is the 35-foot-long living and dining room. But the pad also has a chef’s kitchen with matte lacquer cabinets and quartz countertops, a south-facing corner master suite with a walk-in closet and a windowed master bathroom with heated Calacatta marble floors.

Plus residents have access to the building’s amenities, including a fitness room, lounge, library and playroom.

Benda partnered with art dealer Barry Friedman and opened Friedman Benda in 2007. The gallery, at 515 West 26th Street, has just celebrated its 10 year anniversary.
