Woody Allen’s Manhattan Townhouse, where he lives with wife Soon Yi Previn at 118 E. 70th St. in a $26 million townhouse (that’s over $4,000 per sq ft.) with 10 bathrooms and a private garden on the finest block on the Upper East Side. Or see him courtside at Knick home games at Madison Square Garden. You can also see Woody performing: on certain Monday nights Woody plays clarinet at Cafe Carlyle, 35 E. 76th St.
More on Woody Allen’s Manhattan Townhouse via the November, 2008 issue of Architectural Digest:
Woody Allen, his wife, Soon-Yi Previn, and their two young daughters recently downsized, moving from an immense pile in Carnegie Hill to one of Manhattan’s loveliest side streets, a little farther south, in a neighborhood that is too luxurious to be called bohemian, yet too singular to feel bourgeois. “It’s very hard to find just the right house, which for us was old and full of original detail, on a beautiful block and with a pretty little garden,” Previn says. “Fortunately, after two years of searching, this gem turned up.”
Allen had always admired this street, the same block where he shot some scenes for Annie Hall more than 30 years ago. His new place is at least a century old and grandly proportioned, but it may not feel that way, as the family cheerfully gave up about half their former square footage. Allen now works in a frugal corner of the master bedroom. Between the windows is an old turntable on which he plays his beloved LPs.
