The New York Post is reporting that Chastain, a Julliard-trained actress, has bought the classic nine-room, four-bedroom co-op on Manhattan’s 57th Street under a private trust with Italian boyfriend Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo, a fashion executive who also reportedly is a count. Chastain twice has been nominated for an Oscar, as a leading actress in 2012’s “Zero Dark Thirty” and as a supporting actress in 2011’s “The Help.”

As for Bernstein, to watch him at work was like witnessing a miracle, seeing how with just a flick of a wrist or shrug of one shoulder, he could wrest the best from an orchestra. The image of him preparing for performances in the apartment only adds to the aura of the Osborne building, which is steeped in show business history. Bernstein lived there for about 10 years during the time he worked with Arthur Laurents and Stephen Sondheim on “West Side Story,” which opened on Broadway in 1958. Other famous residents of apartment 4B were “F Troop” actor Larry Storch, café singer Bobby Short and most recently, Adam Guettel, the Tony-winning composer of “The Light in the Piazza” and a grandson of Richard Rodgers.

More about the 3,200-square-foot duplex apartment. It features:

  • Tiger-oak floors
  • Hand-carved mahogany doors
  • 14-foot ceilings
  • Five ornate fireplaces
  • Original Lalique glass pane on the library door.
