This co-op building itself has been a minor movie star: When James Marsden played Prince Edward in the recent live-action Disney hit Enchanted, its curvilinear façade stood in for his palace. His story here had a happy ending, but a more notable previous resident’s did not. According to the listing’s reps, Woolworth heiress Barbara Hutton—known in the gossip columns as the Poor Little Rich Girl, a high-society figure who was married and divorced seven times and died a nearly broke alcoholic in Beverly Hills in 1979—rented Apartment 111 here in the late twenties and thirties, shortly after she made her social debut. Once an eight-room, now remodeled into a six, it sits on the southwest corner, bathed in light in the daytime and graced with unobstructed river views. “You could definitely see her living here,” says listing broker Rick Wohlfarth. “It’s a grande dame apartment.” It also needs substantial renovation, which explains the lowish price for three bedrooms with a river view.
