Picky, Picky, Picky Georgina Bloomberg Settles on Central Park West

Finally some good news for Georgina Bloomberg.

After taking a spill from her horse and being dumped by her boyfriend while bedridden, the mayor’s younger daughter has just bought a new apartment, according to The Times.

Ms. Bloomberg has landed at 101 Central Park West, the stately 1930 neighbor to the twin-turreted Majestic. The Gray Lady reports that she “paid ‘very close’ to the $4.15 million asking price on the three-bedroom, three-bathroom apartment” in the building.

The paper also notes that Ms. Bloomberg looked at more than 150 apartments before settling on this one. Fastidiousness must run in the family…

According to a StreetEasy listing, which went into contract in July and slipped off the market on November 5, the old apartment has been newly updated “by one of New York’s premier interior designers.” There are double-pane thermal windows, new appliances and fixtures, all with well preserved prewar details, such as “Oak herringbone walnut-stained hardwood floors and beautiful large custom Mahogany doors in every room.”

The news that Ms. Bloomberg has left Soho, where she moved in 2008, is intriguing. Perhaps she is growing up–there is certainly room to start a family in this 2,100-square-foot palace fit for a princess–or maybe she just wanted to be closer to daddy.

Not too close of course, he’s still across the park. 

The sellers, James Mitchell and Marcy Meier Braselton, bought the apartment in 2004 for $2.8 million, according to city records. They were represented by Corcoran’s Deanna Kory and Meghan Kelly. According to the Times, Ms. Bloomberg’s brokers were Dennis Mangone and Tim Nelson of Brown Harris Stevens.
