Dennis Hopper Can't Afford Chupi

New, 6 comments

We're just now sorting through New York's massive year-ender, "Reasons to Love New York," and worthy of a chuckle is Julian Schnabel's Palazzo Chupi being billed as the anti-Atlantic Yards, an "immense, gratuitous, noncontextual act of real-estate ego" that actually panned out. They got Schnabel on the phone to talk about it, sorta: "It's magnificent, isn't it?' says Dennis Hopper, who is suddenly on the phone, Schnabel having passed it to him. Would Hopper be moving in? Richard Gere has put the penthouse he bought there on the market for $15 million. 'Unfortunately, I'm not rich enough,' Hopper says. 'If someone wants to make Easy Rider 2, maybe.'"
