Big Apple cheaters could have to seek out a recent spot for his or her clandestine quickies.
The Liberty Inn – Manhattan’s most famous short-stay, hot-sheets motel, and the just one with High Line cachet – is up on the market, The Post has learned.
The owners, listed in public records as Duanco Inc., hope to fetch within the mid-$20 tens of millions through sale brokers B6 Real Estate Advisors.
The Liberty at 500 W. 14th St. has 6,735 square feet but may be demolished for a constructing nearly twice as large under zoning rules, in response to sources.
Couples in search of private space for his or her prurient needs have slinked into the triangular, three-story brick hideaway for greater than 40 years, confident that it’s cleaner and safer than standard no-tell motels. Walk-ins will pay in money.
The Liberty touts itself as “the highest-rated romantic short-stay hotel” in town. It boasts “Amour Rooms” where “stylish colourful décor with romantic accents” make for a “unique and full of life experience and pricier “Romantic Interlude Rooms” with “eye-catching murals, mood lighting and a two-person Jacuzzi.”

Rates are $95-135 for two-to-four hours for Amour digs and $115-$160 for Romantic Interludes.
Within the early Eighties, The Liberty shared a part of its ground floor with the notorious gay S&M club The Anvil.
Nevertheless it’s now a main Meatpacking District development site. The Liberty stands between the High Line Park and the Little Island, the park-on-a-pier within the Hudson. It’s close by the Whitney Museum, Google headquarters and scores of classy stores and restaurants.
But its lusty days are coming to an unhappy ending.
