We don't usually have a hard time telling the difference between a Broadway producer's apartment and the prop room for his show. But to every rule there's an exception, and in this case, it's apartment 10-11D at 33 East 70th Street. It hit the market only a month ago, boasting about "the vision of a pioneering bond trader, art collector and multiple Tony Award-winning Broadway producer in an ongoing collaboration with his architect." A look through public records suggests the producer in question was Morton Swinsky, and his vision involves "literally thousands" of pieces of artwork squeezed into 11 rooms and 6,000 square feet. We wouldn't ordinarily have expected it to fetch its $10.2 million asking price, but the fact that it's already in contract suggests that maybe it got close.
