Gary Shteyngart Bought an Apartment

Author Gary Shteyngart — he of the nutty book trailer, he of the 20 under 40 — and his fiancée recently bought a top-floor apartment on East 18th Street. The Observer’s Chloe Malle reports:

Purchased from Sylvia Khatcherian, an attorney at Morgan Stanley, the Stribling listing ensures a “gorgeous and tastefully renovated” two-bedroom about which listing agent Valerie Artzt declined to comment. Described as “spacious and extraordinarily sunny” with southern exposure in every room, new hardwood floors, and—particularly mouthwatering this season—through-the-wall air-conditioning hidden behind custom cabinets. “Fabulous fitted closets,” ramble throughout the apartment with a 50-square-foot walk-in closet “fit for royalty” adorning the “handsome” master suite; quite a step-up for someone who has described himself growing up as, “small, furry and poor.”
