The New York Post has an item on six-time Daytime Emmy winner, Erika Slezak of One Life to Live. It is notable for two things: the first, that Erika is selling her historic apartment at 50 W. 67th St. for $1.82 million. As savvy longtime OLTL fan know, that apartment was right around the corner from the series long time digs at the castle-like building which housed the studios for OLTL for decades on W. 66th street!
The second notable thing in the piece from the “Post” is that they don’t have their facts straight! And it would be best for reporters who don’t know what is going on in the genre to research things a little better! They say, “Slezak played Victoria Lord since 1971 on One Life To Live until it ended in 2012. She is now back to playing Victoria this year, in an online revival of the show.” Well, as we know, Erika is no longer playing Victoria since the revival of OLTL has now been shelved!
Back to the apartment: Slezak’s two-bedroom, two-bathroom co-op is in the Musician’s Building, a brick and terracotta structure that is listed in the National Register of Historic Places, as part of the West 67th Street Artists’ Colony Historic District, a group of early-20th-century buildings created and financed for artists. The prewar apartment includes a woodburning fireplace; a large living room with built-in bookcases; a renovated, windowed, eat-in kitchen with a wine refrigerator and an all–in-one washer/dryer.
So, what do you think of the apartment Erika is selling, it’s an end of era, isn’t it? And, what do you think about the misinformation in the article? Weigh-in!
