Tony Bennet has lived in New York City for a large portion of his life and calls a deluxe condo in northern Manhatten his home. Through his social media snaps, you can get glimpses of his splendid house.
The apartment is situated on the 15th floor of a high rise building overlooking Central Park. The living space consists of three bedrooms, a large kitchen - which Bennet enjoys cooking in - entertainment rooms, a home office, bathrooms, and more.
The walls are lined with giant windows, which allow natural light to stream into the apartment and light it up. The windows also enable the singer-songwriter to view the park and the city skyline as he paints from his converted art studio.
The studio, converted from a bedroom, serves as the Grammy Award winner's sanctuary. Sketches cover the walls surrounding a heap of paintbrushes and tubes of paint scattered across a table.
The Emmy winner shared with the New York Times in 2015 his passion for painting, as evidenced by the large easel that's positioned next to one of the windows, giving him a view of the iconic Central Park, adding:
"Instead of buildings, you have nature here. There's nothing more powerful than that."
After painting, is a love for cooking. The "I left My Heart In San Francisco' singer often shares moments of himself at the stove on Instagram, inside his large kitchen with soft yellow walls, oak cabinets, and a large dining table.
The living area consists of panel wood floors, large white couches, and a floor to wall mirror. The grandness doesn't stop there, as a gorgeous black grand piano occupies the center of the room where Bennet can play to his heart's content.
Bennet thanked his wife, Susan Crow, as one of his support systems when he Tweeted his Alzheimer's diagnosis.
Bennet, 94, and his family recently revealed that he has been living with Alzheimer's Disease for four years but had taken the decision to keep it under wraps since his initial diagnosis in 2016.
Although sufferers of this ailment are left debilitated through memory loss, affected speech, and depending on caregivers, Bennet has thus far been spared most of these symptoms. He announced his diagnosis on February 1, Tweeting:
"Life is a gift - even with Alzheimer’s."
Bennet thanked his wife, Susan Crow, as one of his support systems when he Tweeted his Alzheimer's diagnosis. The couple met when Crow was in her 20s and Bennet's in his 60's but only tied the knot 20 years later.
Crow, 54, fell in love with Bennet's music when she was just a teenager, on account of her mother, Marion, being a huge fan of the crooner's music herself.
When the COVID-19 pandemic first hit in March 2020, Crow decided to release their assistant, making Bennet more dependent on her to see to his day-to-day needs.
She decided to minimize the number of people coming into contact with Bennet to reduce the risk of contracting the virus. Even though it gets tough, Crow considers her family luckier than most, who deal with the illness.
