In “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel,” Tony Shalhoub plays Abe Weissman, a math professor who lives in a sprawling apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
But in real life, the actor has done the math and decided to sell his stellar New York City pad for $4,495,000. He paid $3,995,000 in 2016 for this stately space, which is also on the Upper West Side.
The “beautifully maintained” unit has two bedrooms and 2.5 baths. It’s accessed by a semiprivate elevator. The landing opens to an elegant entry and view of the private terrace, which terrace sits just on the other side of the French doors in the spacious living room.

Right off the dining room is a butler’s pantry and the windowed kitchen. Both feature restored cabinetry chosen by building architect Emory Roth back in 1930.

The bedroom wing features two corner suites, each with bathrooms, windows, and ample closet space.
Remarkably, the apartment comes with highly prized outdoor space.
The terrace extends more than 60 feet across the width of the apartment. It features original ironwork railings as well as a watering system for plants. From there, it’s easy to entertain guests with a cocktail hour and city and side park views.

When they’re not busy with acting gigs, Shalhoub and his wife, Brooke Adams, enjoy a little home renovation.
They restored and maintained many of the unit’s original details, including herringbone oak floors, high ceilings, crown moldings, and period fixtures and finishes.
“This is a sophisticated restoration of an earlier era,” the listing notes.
The 119-unit building is located across from the Museum of Natural History and the Rose Planetarium. It’s steps from Central Park.
For residents, the white-glove, full-service building offers a fitness center, bike room, children’s playroom, and storage units. The apartment comes with a washer-dryer unit.
Shalhoub started his TV career on the sitcom “Wings.” He later starred in the show “Monk,” as well as the series “BrainDead.” He’s also appeared in film roles for “Galaxy Quest,” “Barton Fink,” and “Big Night.”
