Martin Scorsese Lives Here

Original move posters adorn nearly every wall of the four-story residence of Martin Scorsese, the director of such films as Taxi Driver(1976), Raging Bull (1980) and The Aviator(2004). N. Brodsky’s 1937 graphic image forLa Grande Illusion hangs in the living room.
What a 'home!'. 
And it shines with his interests and collections.
This is what makes his home beautiful in my eyes.
He has chosen important pieces to adorn his home.
I wouldn't mind an invitation to this dinner table.
Imagine the conversations and deals made here.
The back terrace of his home 
is right in the middle of the upper east side of Manhattan.

What do you think about his place???
Would you join M.S. for dinner here if you were invited as Leonardo's dinner date?

  1. Renee:

    It looks very traditional style home -- one that I would not have guessed would be his style... I would love to be invited to dinner and dine in that intimate dining room -- Actually when I lived in NY we had a home similar looking attached Town Home but near New Rochelle.

    I love the poster hanging in the dining room BELLE.
    The court yard is inviting as is the whole house.


  2. Very nice post. Yes I would love to dine here, imagine the conversation. Quess who's coming to dinner.
    Mamma xxx

  3. I would say yes! Enjoy your weekend! Axx

  4. I'll go but as your date!

  5. His rooms remind of a modern day interpretation of Sherlock Holmes' house on Baker Street. Love them!

  6. Hi precious one, well he's Italian & it looks completely filled to the brim, like all Italian I love it! And, absolutely I would go to dinner there just to listen & learn what's happening now. xx's Marsha

  7. Dear Renee,
    I certainly would like to dine with him there. I like his home as, although I'm sure there are many expensive pieces and the neighbourhood is very expensive, he hasn't made it look over the top and it doesn't sceam money. I would be quite comfortab;e there. XXXX

  8. The yard is just awesome..., and in the middle of NYC! I would live in the big apple anytime..., with a roof top garden, pool and view!

  9. I'm a little surprised its so neat, I somehow had the idea that Mr. Scorsese's home would be messy. Film scripts tossed here, clothes tossed there, a desk piled high with stuff - a silly assumption Millie!
    M ^_^

  10. this is fabulous... very masculine ... did he just invite you for cocktails? next time dinner? can you imagine... wonder if we would ever get a word in... he he

  11. I think I actually admire Mr. Scorsese and love his beautiful home, more than his films. When he is interviewed, he is so humble and kind. His home is timeless and I'm not at all surprised by his taste in fine art. A very nice post. Thanks Renee for the tour.



Thanks for participating!!

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
