Chess phenom Josh Waitzkin has sold his three-bedroom co-op at 200 West Houston Street, the New York Observer reported.
The chess champ, on whom the film “Searching for Bobby Fischer” is based, nabbed the pad, between Downing and Bedford streets, for only $1.9 million. It was listed in 2009 for $2.5 million, the Observer said.
The corner duplex apartment has 10-foot ceilings and is part of a 29-unit “intimate co-op,” according to Streeteasy.com.
