We bet that Laura Nissenbaum Slabin googled 239 Central Park West as soon as she saw the listing for the Upper West Side co-op.
The head of global brand strategy and commercialization for the benevolent internet behemoth must have liked what she found, because she and her husband Andrew Slabin, who works at hedge fund GLG Partners, just bought an 8-room co-op from Leigh Butler for $4.17 million, according to city records.
The couple, who married in 2008 (we googled them, of course!) were apparently looking to sink their savings into a prewar pad on the Upper West Side.
The 4-bedroom co-op was listed in February for $4.5 million with Corcoran broker Deanna Kory. The listing touts the 15th-floor apartment’s wonderful views—”full city view, full park view, full skyline view”—but makes hardly any mention of the apartment’s other features. All we learn is that it has prewar details, herringbone wood floors and a wood-burning fireplace.
We assume that Ms. Slabin will take care of the wi-fi connection.
