Tatum O’Neal Wants Out of Jewish Forward Building

Posted on: April 7th, 2011 at 8:23 am by

Three years after the nearby crack bust, actress Tatum O’Neal is looking to sever all ties with the Lower East Side.  The New York Post reports this morning that the Academy Award Winner just listed her 1,435 square-foot condo in the Jewish Forward Building on the open market for $1.495 million.

It was in 2006 that O’Neal purchased the two-bedroom, two-bathroom unit in the converted Forward Building at 175 East Broadway.  Cost – $1.425 million.  And as the Post notes, Tim Cass of Corcoran is in charge of the real estate listing.  Here are a few photos of the former child star’s abode.

Tatum O’Neal allegedly lived full time on the Lower East Side until 2008, when she moved to Los Angeles.  It was around this time, though, that she was arrested in a crack bust just a few blocks from the Forward.  The fuzz spotted the actress paying a drug dealer near the corner of Grand and East Broadway, and eventually charged her with seventh-degree criminal possession of a controlled substance, a misdemeanor.
