Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment

This is the apartment where Philip Seymour Hoffman died.

It is located at 35 Bethune Street in Manhattan, New York.

The actor lived in apartment 4D, which is on the fourth floor. Layout plans on real estate websites show that it is situated in the northwest corner of the building.

Hoffman was found dead on his bathroom floor on the morning of Sunday, February 2nd, 2014. Three weeks later, an autopsy ruled that he had died from acute mixed-drug intoxication.

A toxicology report showed that the 46-year-old had taken heroin, cocaine, benzodiazepines (benzos), and amphetamine.

Hoffman still had a needle in his arm when paramedics arrived at the scene. Several bags of heroin were also found throughout the apartment.

Philip Seymour Hoffman's apartment
Hoffman lived in a rental apartment at Pickford House in the West Village neighborhood of Manhattan.

The Oscar-winning actor had been sober for more than two decades when he relapsed in 2012 due to pressures in his personal life.

At first, he started having a drink or two. However, alcohol eventually led him back down the path of abusing prescription drugs and heroin.

Hoffman's longtime partner, Mimi O'Donnell, quickly grew alarmed about the impact that his addiction was having on their three young children.

Mimi O'Donnell
Hoffman became sober in 1989. He met Mimi O'Donnell ten years later, in 1999. In 2012, he told her that he might start drinking alcohol again. She was strongly opposed to this idea.

When a stint in rehab failed to get him sober, the couple decided that he should move into this apartment on Bethune Street, which was just around the corner from their family home. That way, they could still be a family, but there would be some distance between his substance abuse issues and the children.

Although Hoffman achieved a spell of sobriety in late 2013, he found it so emotionally and physically taxing that he eventually fell off the wagon again. By January 2014, he had begun to isolate himself from his friends and family.

Later that month, he returned from Atlanta after filming most of his scenes for the movie "The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2". Photographs from January 30th show that he spent the day drinking at a bar in Atlanta before passing out on his flight home.

On the morning of February 2nd, he failed to show up to pick up his children. Realizing that this was out of character, O'Donnell immediately asked their mutual friend, David Bar Katz, to check on him.

At around 11.30 a.m., Katz and Hoffman's personal assistant, Isabella Wing-Davey, entered the apartment and found the actor dead on his bathroom floor.
