Amy Schumer has finally sold her “tiny” one-bedroom co-op on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, according to Variety.

Both the buyer and the final selling price are unknown. What is known: the apartment isn’t actually so tiny.

Though last year the comedian joked about how, despite her fame, she still lives in a one-bedroom walk-up apartment, she neglected to mention that it was also a penthouse, technically.

It’s located on the top floor of a beautiful brownstone building, steps from the Museum of Natural History and a block away from Central Park. It totals about 850 square feet and she bought the apartment for $1.695 million in September 2014, Curbed NY reports.

Schumer quietly listed the apartment last November for $2.075 million, as was first reported by the New York Post. Nearly a year later, the price on the cozy space had been reduced to $1.625 million with new brokers. The final listing price was $1.625 million, marking at least a $70,000 loss before realtors fees are factored in.

Modlin Group now had the listing.


The apartment is no typical New York shoe box — it’s actually a penthouse on the top floor of an Upper West Side brownstone.

Schumer wasn’t kidding about the walk-up, however. The apartment is on the fifth floor, and there’s no elevator. At least the hallways are nice.

Once you finally get into the apartment, however, it’s positively adorable. The new listing for the apartment shows these rooms bare, but here’s what the place used to look like inside.

Charm and character present themselves.

Original touches like the fireplace are thoughtfully combined with updated ones like the ceiling fan and the bookcase. Though the dining room and the living room are combined, there’s enough space for both.

The kitchen is small but filled with luxury appliances and an open-cabinet layout. A skylight provides plenty of light.
