Stand-up star and longtime Upper West Sider Amy Schumer is bidding adieu to the neighborhood. The Trainwreck actor’s posh penthouse, located at 190 Riverside Drive (and 91st Street), was originally listed for $15 million last May. According to The Wall Street Journal, its final price tag has been revealed as $13 million — a not-so-shabby profit for the comedian, who shelled out $12.14 million for the full-floor spread in 2016.
Plopped high atop an 11-story Neo-Renaissance condominium building, Schumer’s now-former pad features 4,500 square feet of living space, glass enclosures and skylights throughout, five bedrooms, six bathrooms and a sprawling 3,000 square feet of outdoor space on two levels.
The stunning kitchen is another statement-making feature, as it’s decked out with green cabinetry and quartzite marble detailing throughout. We have no doubt her husband and co-star on former Food Network show Amy Schumer Learns to Cook, chef Chris Fischer, enjoyed the substantial room to flex his culinary skills.
Naturally, the unit is accessible through a locked private elevator, making this an ideal home for a celebrity. The deep-pocketed buyer of the airy abode is also in showbiz; Benj Pasek, acclaimed lyricist and composer who snagged a coveted Oscar statuette for his work on La La Land, is said to be moving in.
Prior to her time on Riverside Drive, Schumer made do in a one-bedroom apartment on top of brownstone on the tree-lined West 80th Street. Her equally funny friends within walking distance over the years have included close pal Jerry Seinfeld (who famously lives at The Beresford) and Steve Martin (a San Remo man), with whom she guest-starred on the most recent season of Only Murders in the Building.
If you’re wondering what’s next for the Schumer-Fischer family (the duo share a three-year-old son, Gene), it’s been widely reported they’re decamping to Brooklyn Heights after dropping $12.5 million for the house featured in Moonstruck. And now, the real question: Will she enjoy her new ‘hood as much as the UWS? In the iconic words of Cher, “Snap out of it!”
