It seems like just yesterday that Rosie O’Donnell was buying a duplex in one of the old St. Vincent’s hospital buildings. Indeed, it was a mere nine months ago that the comedian closed on the four-bedroom, three-bath penthouse, paying $8.09 million for the newly-converted condo.
But sometimes real estate, despite the best efforts of all parties involved, simply doesn’t take. Which appears to be the case with Ms. O’Donnell and her perfectly lovely-looking apartment at 130 West 12th Street. After less than a year of ownership, the funny girl has plunked the unit back on the market, asking $10.95 million.
After years of enjoying the suburban life in Nyack, Rosie O’Donnell is finally moving to Manhattan, having closed on a four-bedroom, three-bath duplex penthouse at 130 West 12th Street.
The sale was rumored earlier this summer in the Post, and lo it was real and has finally closed, with Ms. O’Donnell plunking down $8 million for the Greenwich Village spread in one of St. Vincent’s former hospital buildings. The Rudin Family, which handled the condo conversion, was only asking $7.95 million, but in her exuberance, Ms. O’Donnell apparently dropped $50,000 to make it a nice even number.
Summer is a horrible time for the unmarried. How many days do we have to take off of work to travel to a friend’s destination wedding? How many holidays are spent not relaxing on a beach, but en route to a last-minute hotel, where you’ll spend the long weekend making small talk with people you don’t really know?
Ugh. Weddings. That’s why Rosie O’Donnell did it right: The 50-year-old actress, who was supposed to marry fiancée Michelle Rounds this month, was secretly hitched earlier this summer.
