A hit children’s TV show will take you far in this town. Dora the Explorer co-creator Eric Weiner and wife Cherie Vogelstein, a playwright, have bought a high-floor, seven-room condo at Ariel West, the new glass tower on West 99th Street and Broadway. According to city records, they paid $4.395 million.
Besides their four-bedroom, three-and-a-half-bathroom, 2,881-square-foot apartment, the Upper West Side writer couple will have an in-building spa, plus a 51-foot-long swimming pool–though, you know, what self-respecting Upper West Side writer couple doesn’t have one of those nowadays?
Mr. Weiner is credited with work on copious Dora episodes, including Quack! Quack!, Choo Choo, Boot’s Cuddly Dinosaur, and Hic-Boom-Ohhh. Ms. Vogelstein’s last big work in New York, Love is Deaf, got mixed reviews. The Times called it “familiar fare, spiced with cute eccentricities that might have shown up on an episode of Friends.
