Is Moby Moving Back Downtown?

MOBY-LIZE $7.5M buys Moby’s UWS Manhattan joint at the El Dorado

Once the poster boy of downtown Manhattan, Moby famously packed up his act early last year and moved to the Upper West Side—to a $4.5 million, five-floor penthouse at the exclusive El Dorado on Central Park West, home to such celebs as Marilyn Monroe, Faye DunawayNina GriscomCharles Rockefeller, and Bono.

Likely disoriented, possibly tempted by kosher meats, and, worse, going largely unrecognized among the scads of Upper West Siders who look just like him (minus even a stitch of irony), Moby the Meatless put his uptown aerie on the market for a staggering $7.5 million.

The two-bedroom, two-bath space stacks up four terraces, totaling 1,500-square-feet of coveted outdoor space that hangs over Central Park. The deck on the third floor, accessed by a spiral staircase, has a 360-degree view and a built in barbecue. Still no hot dogs? Anyone?
