Former Met Director Buys $1.75 Million UES Apartment

New, 1 comment

Retired Metropolitan Museum of Art director and major museum world figure Philippe de Montebello is the new owner of this 2BR, 2BA Carnegie Hill condo. He and his wife paid $1.75 million, a little under the asking price of $1.795 million. The listed amenities seem fairly spare as far as luxury condos go, with a roof terrace, storage space and garage. And we're a bit surprised de Montebello, who was the longest-serving director in the history of the Met, not to mention the narrator of the museum's audio guides, didn't choose a place with more of a gallery feel. But there are probably some decent art-hanging and statue-standing spots in that living room.
