Walk-Through: Rue McClanahan’s Sutton Place Co-Op


Legendary actress Rue McClanahan, whose Blanche Devereaux added delightful sauciness to the hit TV show The Golden Girls, was planning for a Broadway show based on her life and prepping her Sutton Place apartment for sale when she passed away from a stroke in early June. The three-bedroom, two-bath co-op on East 56th Street, decorated with plenty of McClanahan’s artwork (including a quilt she’d finished just before her death, and unusual features like a hidden passageway and a sculpture of a naked woman walking through an office door), is on the market. New York stopped in for a tour with Brown Harris Stevens broker and McClanahan friend Steven Marvisch, who’s handling the sale.
