As the owner of the popular theater hangout Angus’ on West 44th Street, Angus McIndoe has a steady diet of crowds and clamor, of customers intent on making a matinee, of customers intent on making an entrance — or a scene.
Little wonder, come closing time, that Mr. McIndoe happily heads around seven miles north to the two-bedroom prewar apartment he has occupied in Washington Heights since 2010.
The rental is admirably situated — it’s a quick subway ride to work and an easy trip to the New Jersey town that is home to Mr. McIndoe’s ex-wife and their son, Cameron, 15. But the ground-floor space has more than convenience to recommend it.
