Screenwriter, director, and frequent Martin Scorsese collaborator Paul Schrader is looking to part ways with his Chelsea condo—the apartment, located at 350 West 23rd Street, just hit the market for $3.25 million.

Schrader has worked with Scorsese on some of his most famous films; he wrote the screenplay for Taxi Driver, Raging Bull, The Last Temptation of Christ, and Bringing Out the Dead. (There’s also a picture of Schrader and Scorsese prominently featured in the listing, just to underscore the point.) He also directed a handful of acclaimed movies, including Affliction and First Reformed.

He and his wife, actress Mary Beth Hurt, have called this sleek three-bedroom apartment home for 10 years, but are now moving on. In addition to the three bedrooms (one of which is a master suite with an enormous walk-in closet and en-suite bathroom), the apartment has a huge living room with a wall of windows and a gas fireplace, an open kitchen with new appliances, and two balconies. There are also plenty of mod cons—in-unit laundry, central air, and a built-in sound system.

The apartment is listed with Compass’s Lois Planco and Leonard Steinberg. Taxes are $2,833/month, and common charges are $1,421/month.

A door leads into a room with bookshelves and a small wooden cabinet with statues on it. There is another room before that with a framed photo on the wall, and another cabinet with a statue perched on top.
