When the current owners first toured this apartment, they didn’t think much of the fact that the countertops were custom-built for a very tall person or that the lower level was set up like a dance studio. It wasn’t until closing that they learned the seller was Tommy Tune, the six-foot-six-inch Broadway director, choreographer, and performer who won nine Tonys and lived here for two decades before moving to another penthouse on East 52nd Street. The sellers say the neighbors still speak of Tune’s legendary parties, which drew the likes of Lauren Bacall and Twiggy. Every Halloween, he handed out balloons to the building’s trick-or-treaters.
