Mayor Bloomberg has reportedly been a little moody as he nears the twilight of his term and focuses on shoring up his political legacy, according to the The New York Times. Now it appears that the self-made billionaire mayor is focusing on putting his house–or houses–in order in more ways than one.
The mayor has transferred ownership of two of his Upper East Side homes to the Michael R. Bloomberg Revocable Trust, of which he is the principal trustee, city records show. The trust now has the deed on the 2,200-square-foot, fifth-floor condo at 610 Park Avenue that he bought just a few weeks before his inauguration in 2002 and the 7,012-square-foot townhouse at 17 East 79th Street (valued at $13.5 million, according to PropertyShark) that he has owned for 22 years.
In the past two years, Mayor Bloomberg bought two other buildings in the neighborhood to house his foundation headquarters. Back in September, The Observer‘s Max Abelson broke the news that the he paid around $40 million for 1014 Madison Avenue.
