The New York City apartment that Academy Award-winning actor Philip Seymour Hoffman was found dead in last month has been put up for rent.

Mr. Hoffman was found dead with a needle stuck in his arm from an overdose in the fourth-floor unit at 35 Bethune St.

The unit, located in a building called Pickwick House, is now on the market for rent of $10,500 a month, the New York Post reported.

“They did a big clean-up,” a source said.

The apartment is a two-bedroom, two-bath, loft-like apartment, and it features 10-foot-high, wood-beamed ceilings, a wood-burning brick fireplace, strip oak floors and custom closets in both bedrooms, The Post reported.

Mr. Hoffman reportedly had suffered from drug addiction for years. After 23 years sober, he admitted in interviews that he relapsed and developed an addiction to heroin. He checked into a rehabilitation facility last year.

Law enforcement officials said the actor’s body was discovered in his apartment bathroom by an assistant and a friend, who called 911. Mr. Hoffman’s family called his death “tragic and sudden.”
