In the latest edition of “Working Mother,” actress Edie Falco talks about the new Manhattan apartment she recently bought and how she donated her kitchen to a company that resells the goods and donates proceeds to charity.
While we don’t know where Falco and her two kids are now calling their Big Apple home, we do know that the award-winning star of “The Sopranos” and “Nurse Jackie” has listed her duplex in the Tribeca real estate market of New York City.
Calling it a “ZenSational in Tribeca,” Falco’s penthouse condo has 4 bedrooms plus a home office, 3 full bathrooms, soaring ceilings and 2 terraces that add an additional 950 square feet to the apartment’s interior 3,000 square feet.
Falco bought the condo for $3.8 million in 2005, which is the same year she adopted her son, Anderson. In 2008, she added daughter Macy to the clan, which may be part of the reason why the Falcos needed new digs.
While Falco has taken some hits for the low-key decor of her condo, the talented actress makes no bones about the long hours she keeps while plying her trade (she just signed on for a play at the non-profit Manhattan Theatre Club’s 2012-2013 season) plus the time she puts in parenting her kids.
In her Working Mother interview, Falco said raising her kids in Manhattan has its challenges.
Originally, I was intimidated by the concept. After all, I grew up in the
laid-back suburbs of Long Island. I think being a New York City mom can be scary, because there’s a lot of micromanaging and helicopter parenting, and I’m not like that at all. It took me a while to realize I could parent Anderson [age 7] and Macy [age 3] my own way, and, happily, my kids are thriving.
