Molly Ringwald, former teen icon and “Brat Pack” star of several classic 1980s coming-of-age movies, is selling her New York City co-op. The two bedroom, two-bathroom apartment is listed for $1.795 million.
Originally built in 1900, the apartment features many original details, but has been lovingly restored by Ringwald, star of "Sixteen Candles," "The Breakfast Club" and "Pretty in Pink." She kept the marble bathrooms, the high exposed-beam ceilings, exposed brick walls and two elaborate fireplaces.
The kitchen features modern stainless-steel countertops and the best in chef’s appliances nestled cozily next to a vintage-style stove.
The rooftop features stunning views of the Chrysler Building and One World Trade Center, while the home’s historic arched windows offer scenic views as well.
The apartment is the only co-op in the famous Renwick Triangle in the East Village. The brownstone row houses are named after the architect, James Renwick Jr., who also designed St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
The co-op shares space with only one other unit, and the common spaces have recently undergone a tasteful upgrade.
Clean and simple lines reign throughout the apartment — fitting for an actress who was once the reigning teen heartthrob for a generation. These days, Ringwald spends her time writing national best-sellers, singing jazz and acting in the Canadian sitcom, “Raising Expectations.”
Ringwald must be, in some ways, raising her own expectations, or perhaps moving across the border to film her new series. Either way, she’s leaving behind a lovely little slice of luxury in the East Village for the next buyer, with no pink to be found.
