The Real Deal New York

“Law & Order” cop Richard Belzer finally ditches UWS digs

Two years after first listing his apartment, “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” actor Richard Belzer has sold his combination co-op at 60 Riverside Drive for $3 million, according to city property records filed today.

The cop show star and his wife, actress Harlee McBride, first listed the four-bedroom, three-and-a-half bathroom home two years ago, with Douglas Elliman’s Arthur Korant and Harry Kendrick, asking $3.19 million. Two months later, the couple chopped the price to $2.9 million, but apparently to no avail.

While the apartment was no longer listed on StreetEasy, it finally traded, and for close to the original ask, records show. The buyers were an Ariel and Catherine Deckelbaum. Ariel is the deputy chair of the corporate law department at law firm Paul, Weiss.

Belzer and McBride paid $541,000 for one unit at the building in 2006, but the other half of the combination abode does not seem to appear in city records.

Belzer and McBride were downsizing their New York City digs because they spend the bulk of their time in the south of France and planned to seek a smaller unit in the same building, the actor told New York magazine when he listed the apartment. He added that the home boasts lovely views of the Hudson River.

The building, which sits between West 78th and West 79th streets, boasts a doorman and bike storage, according to StreetEasy.

Calls to Ariel Deckelbaum, Korant and Kendrick and an email to Belzer’s assistant were not immediately returned.
