Author's Son Goes Big on Broadway

laureate Author's Son Goes Big on Broadway

Broadway bound.

We told you last week that the estate of  noted musical historian Joan Peyser had sold her pristine townhouse. It looks like her son, Tony Peyser, has been busy on the real estate front as well. Mr. Peyser and his wife, Suzanne Horn, just bought a place at 2150 Broadway.

Mr. Peyser, a founding member of consulting firm Peyser and Alexander Management, showed his financial prowess on the deal. Originally listed for $6.05 million, Mr. Peyser and Ms. Horn ended up paying $5.75 million for the 4-bedroom, 4-bath home.

Maybe their kids can learn elementary Spanish with their new neighbors, Eric Weiner and Cherie Vogelstein, he the creator of Nickelodeon’s hit kids show Dora the Explorer.  City records show that Mr. Peyser sold his previous home at 160 West 86th for $2.75 million earlier this summer. Add to that the $8.6 million the estate made on mom’s old place and the couple probably didn’t pay much of anything on the new pad.

According to a listing by Brown Harris Stevens broker Shlomi Reuveni, Mr. Peyser and Ms. Horn’s new 2,790-square-foot home features all imaginable amenities. The great room, which faces Broadway, includes French doors which open out onto a Juliet balcony. The master bedroom includes not one but two walk-in-closets, with an impressive master bath featuring “a custom double sink vanity with art deco inspired faucets, floors graced with radiant heat, and walls and counters in Banco marble with an Orion blue marble wainscot.” It’s like having a townhouse in the sky.
