John “Jellybean” Benitez, a NY-based bassist, producer and a remixer known for working with music legends such as Madonna, Whitney Houston, Michael Jackson, Billy Idol and Talking Heads is listing his triplex brownstone property, located at 11 Gramercy Park, for rent this week with Luis Ortiz of Keller Williams NYC. The three-story, property was first listed for sale in 2011. John’s former listing agency, The Modlin Group, was attempting to sell the triplex for $18 Million. Since then, the price was decreased several times, from $25 million in May of 2012, to $22 million in February of 2013, and, finally, to $18 million in June.
John and his wife Carolyn, a former model who now owns a coffee shop in Union Square, purchased the property back in 1992.
