Disgraced fashion photog Terry Richardson sells NYC ‘Firehouse’


Disgraced fashion photographer Terry Richardson — accused of sexual assault, harassment and exploitation by many youthful models around the decades — has offered his property, “the Firehouse in Soho,” on Lafayette Street for about $5.5 million, sources explain to Gimme Shelter.

The 20-foot-wide, 2,800-square-foot landmarked and renovated firehouse comes with a putting fire engine-pink lacquered spiral staircase.

The a few-story residence was developed in 1887 for FDNY Engine Enterprise No. 55. The brick exterior attributes terracotta rosettes and a stone cornice, flanked by solid-iron pillars topped with none-far too-refined flame accents.

Inside of, the home options just one bed room and two bathrooms.

Richardson, identified for his normally “hyper-sexualized” advertisement campaigns for designers like Marc Jacobs, Tom Ford and Yves Saint Laurent, is the son of the late, profitable — but troubled — trend photographer Bob Richardson.

In 2017, Condé Nast axed the younger Richardson, pursuing sexual assault and harassment accusations. 

At the time, he claimed in a statement offered by a rep: “He is an artist who has been regarded for his sexually express function, so quite a few of his professional interactions with topics had been sexual and explicit in mother nature, but all of the topics of his perform participated consensually.”

It was last on the current market as a rental asking $25,000 a thirty day period, which dropped to $17,500 a month, again in 2019.

A comprehensive-floor main bedroom suite offers 14-foot beamed ceilings, and a spa-like bathroom with a clawfoot tub and a windowed steam shower, even though the ground ground can provide as a studio, a garage, a professional house or secondary entertaining spot — with flooring-to-ceiling tailor made crafted-in bookshelves, poured concrete flooring and paneled double bay doorways.

The firehouse was developed by Napoleon LeBrun, who designed 40 firehouses between 1889 and 1895, such as this one particular, notes a former listing. It served the neighborhood for almost 100 decades until finally 1982 the city held it as “sleeping quarters” for its deputy hearth chief, Thomas R. Langford.
