Alex Rodriguez And Robin Williams Heading To The Rushmore Building

Posted: Updated:

The Rushmore building on the Upper West Side got a heaping spoonful of star power this week.

First it was reported that actor Robin Williams was renting a place for $15,000 a month, and now, Yankees slugger Alex Rodriquez is buying a penthouse in the building.

The 3,600 square-foot bachelor pad, with sprawling living and dining room spaces and working fireplaces, is estimated to cost around $6.5 million.

From the Daily News:

The building's many luxury amenities, including a swimming pool, a fitness center, a billiards room, theater and a 185-car garage.

Extell Development Co., which operates the Rushmore building, released a statement speculating on what made the gold glover decide to move in.

Rodriguez "loved the building, the park and the water views, but we think that the clincher was the baseball field outside the front door," the statement said.

So both Williams and A-Rod will be moving into the Rushmore, but not together (though that does have the makings of a promising sitcom...).
