ABC News reportedly paid Meagan Broussard, one of the six women who had illicit electronic contact with Congressman Anthony Weiner, between $10,000 and $15,000 for a cache of photos the two had exchange. In return, she agreed to an interview with legal correspondent and 20/20 anchor Chris Cuomo. That may sound like a lot, but it would take at least 120 Weinergates to buy the broadcaster’s home on the Upper West Side.
The governor’s younger brother, black sheep of the Cuomo clan, and his wife Christina, the former editor of Gotham and Hamptons magazines, just sold their three-bedroom co-op at 639 West End Avenue for $1.845 million, according to city records. The buyers are Hyang-Sook Lee, a bankruptcy attorney at Simpson Thatcher, and Nathan Dudley Taft, the director of acquisitions at Jonathan Rose Companies, the affordable housing developer.
The Cuomos bought their Classic 6 in 2002–city records do not list a price–and renovated it into a more modern seven-room spread some time thereafter, still chock-a-block with original details like beams, molding and built-ins. The maids room has an ingenious Murphy bed so it can double as an office or breakfast room off the kitchen. “These rooms enjoy floods of Southern light and an outlook over a nearby church,” Sotheby’s Serena Boardman declares in her listing. “Offered in truly superb mint condition, this corner residence is distinguished by leafy tree-line views throughout.”
Sounds almost as nice the Executive Mansion.
The home came on the market in October of last year for $1.95 million–eight months after the Cuomos had their third child. Baby Bella has probably begun to outgrow that maids room.
