159 West 24th Street and Ira Glass

More than a year after getting sued for allegedly ceding his Chelsea apartment to unseemly vermin, Ira Glass, one of radio’s leading proprietors of pathos, has listed it for $1.75 million.

The apartment at 159 West 24th Street has been gut-renovated since the buggy incident, 6sqft reported. Compass broker Greg McHale is marketing the one-bedroom, 1,020-square-foot home. The building, known as the Carriage House, was converted to condos in 2012. Glass bought the apartment then for $1.27 million.

In 2016, the condominium board sued Glass, the host of the long-running program “This American Life,” because it claimed Glass and wife Anaheed Alani would not allow management into the apartment to deal with a bedbug and rat infestation. Glass denied the claims, telling the New York Post he dealt with the problem, but that a neighbor had not. [6sqft]Will Parker
