Russian Novelist Unloading $1.3M Washington Heights Home

December 8, 2016

idov-home-in-harlemScreenwriter/novelist Michael Idov knows what it is like to live in an authoritarian country without logic, as he chronicled his time in Putin-controlled Russia in a New York Times magazine piece, “My Accidental Career as a Russian Screenwriter,” in January of this year.

Now Idov — a former editor of Russian GQ magazine — has put his 10th-floor Washington Heights residence at 790 Riverside Dr., at 157th Street, on the market for $1.3 million.

The building, known as the Riviera, is a 1910 Beaux Arts building designed by Rouse and Goldstone. Idov currently lives in Berlin.

The three-bedroom, 1½-bathroom unit has distant Empire State building views and is situated in the Audubon Park Historic District.

It comes with a formal dining room with restored oak paneling,  original moldings and opens through folding French doors to a large living room.
