These days we barely bat an eyelash when a Russian oligarch buys a trophy apartment in the Plaza or 15 Central Park West, but it’s rare to encounter an expat whose personal fortune comes from anesthesiology.
A New Jersey-based pain management specialist, Dr. Anna Sokolova, has paid $5.8 million for a 30th-floor condo in the star-studded Upper West Side building, city records show.
Dr. Sokolova appears to have a penchant for high-profile properties on Central Park West. She also owns a $3.2 million, 2,206-square-foot apartment on the top floor of the literally palatial condo building in a former psychiatric hospital at 455 Central Park West in Morningside Heights; and a year ago Hollywood producers Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy bought a $2.695 million co-op at 120 Central Park South from a buyer named Anna Sokolova.
Dr. Sokolova must have a magic touch with a real estate portfolio like that.
