When they first came to New York City, aspiring actors and roommates Dustin Hoffman and Gene Hackman were living below the American poverty level, Hoffman reminisces. How times have changed for the little big man and the graduate of the school of hard knocks!
The two-time Oscar winner recently sold his triplex apartment at the San Remo complex on Central Park West for $21,018,500. Other famous residents of the art deco-style building that was designed by Emery Roth and completed in 1930 have included Steve Martin, Tiger Woods, Diane Keaton, Donna Karan, Steven Spielberg, Tony Randall, Glenn Close and Demi Moore. Apple founder, the late Steve Jobs, once sold his unused penthouse to U2 frontman Bono.
Dustin’s digs were 8000 square feet, sprawled over three floors and included four bedrooms, six bathrooms and two terraces. He maintains impressive lodgings elsewhere, too, with properties in Malibu and Brentwood, California as well as in the tony Kensington area of London, England.
