Atoosa Rubenstein, everyone’s favorite cat lady, is moving her growing brood into bigger digs.
Ms. Rubenstein and commodities-trader husband Ari have purchased a palatial 4,300-square foot spread at 535 West End Avenue, city records show.
Ms. Rubenstein, the former whiz-kid editor of Seventeen and CosmoGIRL!, left the industry six years ago to start Big Momma Productions, a consultancy of sorts that appears to have done little other than maintain a vestigial web presence. Now she has three children, a rich husband and brand new condo on the Upper West Side.
As president of HBO films between 1999 and 2008, Colin Callender was responsible for helping to erase, or at least lessen, the grimace caused by the words “made for TV.”
Maybe he and wife Elizabeth Callender can help do the same thing for the somewhat staid environs of Upper East Side? The pair just bought a four-bedroom, four-bath floor-through at 3 East 84th Street.
We all knew this moment would come—after all, what was conservative View co-host Elisabeth Hasselbeck doing on the Upper West Side in the first place? Now she and ex-NFL-er husband Tim Hasselbeck have finally offloaded their four-bedroom condo at Ariel West, Gary Barnett’s glassy tower at 245 West 99th Street.
Sure, the couple took a loss on the place. They paid $3.3 million for the condo in 2008 and only got $3.1 million in this sale, city records show. But at least they got out! The couple is moving to Greenwich, Conn. with their three children, where they can count on a backyard, a three-story house and at least a few neighbors who have similar political leanings.
At times, it can be difficult to follow child chess prodigy Josh Waitzkin’s strategy. But Mr. Watzkin’s latest move—castling into a bright three-bedroom co-op at 200 West Houston Street—is a no-brainer.
The native New Yorker, on whom the movie Searching for Bobby Fischer is based, may have traveled the world, but he knows there’s no place like home when it comes to real estate investments. And the Greenwich Village pad is not so far from Washington Square Park, where Mr. Waitzkin first learned the game by playing blitz chess with hustlers.
The charm, versatility and charisma of Jason Bateman and the camera-ready good looks of Ryan Reynolds should add up to more than a piece of crummy, amateurish junk called The Change-Up. But what else can a discerning filmgoer (I naively presume, perhaps foolishly, there are a few of those left) count on from bogus director Read More
