Robert De Niro recently moved into one of the priciest rental apartments in the city – a 6,000-square-foot condo at 15 Central Park West. How pricey? The Academy Award-winning actor will be paying $125,000 per month in rent.

The apartment’s owner is steel tycoon Leroy Schechter, who listed it for $95 million back in 2012 and subsequently chopped the asking price to $65 million. The 35th-floor condo, which was combined from two units, features five bedrooms, seven bathrooms and a library.

Schechter paid a total of $18.9 million for both units in 2008.

In 2012, De Niro sold his West Village townhouse for $9.5 million, as previously reported. [NYP]Mark Maurer
