There comes a time in every magazine subscriber’s life when she looks at the stacks of unread glossies piling up around the house, or finds herself sighing with relief when an ad-fattened double-issue lands in her mailbox, and concludes, sadly, that this must stop.
We assume that it was with a similar mix of regret and liberation that Entertainment Weekly editor Jess Cagle cancelled his residence at 10 Park Avenue. Mr. Cagle must have looked forward to getting the Murray Hill two-bedroom, eagerly anticipated poring over detail and then, slowly, before he knew it, the place had transformed from a delight into a burden. Or maybe Mr. Cagle and his partner, interior decorator Shawn Henderson, simply found a bigger, fancier spread somewhere else.
It looks like Stone Phillips may have finally found a place to settle down. The former Dateline anchor displayed some undeniable signs of real estate restlessness, especially after NBC declined to renew his contract. In 2007, he sold both his triplex penthouse on Central Park West and then in 2010, he also offloaded his sprawling loft on West 19th Street.
Next the former anchor bought a two-bedroom spread at 45 Gramercy Park North for $4.9 million, apparently with every intention of staying—he hired architect Michael Haverland to do a full renovation. But Mr. Phillips offloaded the downtown spread just a year later, along with Mr. Haverland’s blueprints, for $5.7 million, seemingly retreating to the family’s country house in Dobbs Ferry, which he listed on the deed.
