This time, Amy Irving isn’t “Crossing Delancey,” but she’s apparently willing to cross Central Park West. The 62-year-old film and stage star who famously received a $100 million divorce settlement from ex-husband Steven Spielberg has listed her sprawling apartment in the Prasada building at 50 Central Park West for $11.5 million.

The prewar beauty rambles for 3,200 square feet and contains 5 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms over two distinct wings. There are two fireplaces, classic herringbone floors, an elegant dining room and the master suite features views of New York City.

The Prasada is a pretty spectacular legend of NYC residential real estate. Originally designed to contain only three units per floor, there have been some units that were subdivided into smaller dwellings, but the building also contains some lavish, Old World stunners, like this 5,600-square foot penthouse that sold last year for $48 million. There are 40 units in the 1907 building.

Irving, who starred in “Yentl” and “Carrie” among many other film and stage credits, has a son with Spielberg, who she was married to from 1985 to ‘89 after a long romance, and a second son with Brazilian film director Bruno Barreto.

She is married to documentary film director Kenneth Bowser, Jr. and has owned this apartment since 2005, the year she and Barreto were divorced. Her co-op is currently the only unit available for sale in this coveted NYC building.
