We’ve heard that media doyenne Arianna Huffington has been looking for a good perch in the city ever since HuffPo got snapped up by AOL, and now the New York Daily News is claiming that Ms. Huffington is headed to the Upper East Side, where she is may or may not have bought a townhouse on East 80th Street.
As far as real estate rumors go, “We think it’s a townhouse on E. 80th St.” is fairly weak. But there are signs that Ms. Huffington might be in the market. Donald Trump said that he jacked up the rent on an apartment at 502 Park Avenue specifically to keep Ms. Huffington, his sworn enemy, out when she was considering renting there last year. And last we heard she was renting a townhouse in the West Village.
In the event that Ms. Huffington has not bought already, but is seriously considering it, we’ve prepared a portfolio of available townhouses for her perusal. Our favorite is the Woolworth Mansion, but there are a lot of other strong contenders out there, including one that has suspiciously disappeared from the market.
