Veteran TV actor/director Jace Alexander (son of Tony and Emmy Award-winning actress Jane Alexander) checked out a renovated Harlem townhouse at 124 West 132nd Street that just hit the market for $3.295 million.
Alexander and is wife, actress Maddie Corman, with their growing family, are thinking of moving to Harlem to be near other actors like Neil Patrick Harris and their close actor friends, David Alan Basche and Alysia Reiner, who all live a few blocks away.
The four-story 4,250 s/f townhouse built in 1899 has a four bedroom owner’s triplex and a five-room, two-bath garden duplex, just in case they want to rent out.
Corcoran broker David Daniels has the listing.
Billionaire hedge fund manager of Millennium Management, Israel Englander, has acquired the official residence of the French Ambassador to the United Nations in New York for $70 million — almost 50 percent more than the property’s initial listing of $48 million.
The sale equals the previous record of $70 million for a co-op in New York made when Nassef Sawiris acquired the 960 Fifth Ave. penthouse that was previously owned by the late Edgar Bronfman.
Douglas Elliman broker Victoria Shtainer (who was not involved in the sale) said Englander got a bargain.
“The square footage plus the cache that he created by buying in one of the most prestigious buildings in NY is more than value,ˮ said Shtainer.
“This opportunity comes up once in a lifetime, and he grabbed it.ˮ
