Accused apartment trasher, Arianna Huffington, has abandoned the Chelsea apartment she is being sued over and has reportedly flown south, to SoHo.
The New York Post reported that Huffington purchased a 4,000 s/f, three-bedroom loft apartment on Mercer Street for $8 million just before the New Year.
Former Goldman Sachs banker Matt L’Heureux was the seller, the Post reported.
Anyone who cares to get a periodic neighborly glimpse of the Material Girl, may want to consider plopping down $9.5 million for 158 East 81st Street which sits right next to Madonna’s home on the Upper East Side.
However if you are going to do it, you’d better do it fast.
Bids on the 20 foot wide, four-story townhouse, will only be taken up until 5pm today, Wednesday April 10th by brokers Thomas Gammino and Guthrie Garvin at Massey Knakal.
Madonna, who owns the next three townhouses, purchased the property next door at 152 East 81st Street in 2010, according to city records.
Neighbors of the street, located between Park and Lexington Avenues told the Commercial Observer last week that they have seen Madonna “maybe twice in three years.”
Whoever decides to move in may have more of a chance of seeing the pop stars 16-year old daughter Lourdes Leon, when she bops down the street with her new 17-year old boyfriend Timothee Chalamet of the TV hit “Homeland.”
East Village buildings baron Jared Kushner of Kushner Companies and owner of the New York Observer was reportedly seen quietly tiptoeing in and out of a speech given by developer Joe Moinian of the Moinian Group according to a source. Moinian was the keynote speaker at B’Nai B’rith International New York Unit’s April luncheon.
Maybe Kushner was trying to take some pointers after his buying spree in the East Village, around $200 million for multiple buildings and retail locations between Houston and 14th Streets over the last month and a half.
Kushner reportedly arrived late to the Cornell Club, standing in the back of the room, and leaving just before the applause for Moinian was completed.
