Joel Siegel’s co-op at 82 Irving Place has been sold to an In Style editor Ariela Avram for $1.95 million, city records show. The tirelessly cheerful Good Morning America film critic died last summer at the age of 63 after a prolonged battle with colon cancer. His wife and the executor of his estate, Ena Swansea, signed the property deed.
Siegel had been fundraising for cancer research for decades before he was diagnosed following his first wife’s death from brain cancer. He and Gene Wilder co-founded the first Gilda’s Club cancer support group.
