TMZ first reported the sale, but put the price tag on the second-floor unit at 77 Park Avenue closer to $2 million. Ms. Uchitel purchased the three-bedroom spot from Cosmo editor Riann Smith and director of Barclay’s Capital Jean-Claude Zucconi. Sources told TMZ that Ms. Uchitel views her new home in frat boy-filled Murray Hill as the perfect place to settle down and start a family.

— Korn guitarist James Shaffer has listed his West 37th Street loft for $1.295 million, The New York Times reports. If you’re hoping for some inspired heavy metal décor, think again. “It’s what a loft should be,” says Mr. Shaffer’s broker. “High ceilings, big open spaces, hardwood floors. Not an overly fancy building, not an overly fancy apartment.”

— Senior MTV exec Joey Molko has sold his Upper East Side apartment for $1.385 million. The creatively inclined Mr. Molko told his alumni newsletter that he picked law school over writing because, “I wanted to be gainfully employed.” It appears to have paid off.  The apartment went to Jean Vitau, a French jewelry designer, who reportedly landed in New York 30 years ago with three wedding rings in his pocket and has since created a prestigious collection.

— Edwin Muelensteen, a Dutch art dealer who recently purchased one of the city’s most exclusive art galleries, has also grabbed a home at 122 Chambers Street, in the Seaman Company Building, for $1.8 million.
