UPDATE: Mariska Hargitay

Ever since we discussed Law and Order high priestess Mariska Hargitay selling her Jeffrey Bilhuber designed TriBeCa penthouse (for $5,100,000), we have been inundated with calls and emails from fervent Law and Order fans demanding–yes children dee-man-ding–that Your Mama provide an update on where the new mommy and her huzband Peter have moved.

But Your Mama didn't have a clue until NY Observer real estate gossip Max Abelson announced to the world that the daughter of long dead Hollywood pinup Jayne Mansfield and the muscular Mickey Hargitay plunked down $7,000,000 to purchase one of the penthouses riding atop the recently redeveloped O'Neill Building on Sixth Avenue in the Flatiron district of Manhattan. The building, erected in 1887, housed the city's first major department store and was distinctive for it's 32 foot high gold domes gracing the corners.

Miz Hargitay's penthouse spans 4,819 square feet according to property records, and includes a domed turret accessible by an interior staircase within the restored domes. Additionally, the unit includes a reported 2,500 square feet of outdoor space. So really, it's of no consequence that there aren't any children's playgrounds for blocks around. Miz Hargitay can just put a sand box and a swing set on the roof.

Thanks for the New York posts, Mama. Why did NY Mag refer to you as an LA realestate blogger? Don't they know our mama is a damn yankee? Well ain't you mama, huh? The old Stanhope Hotel now 995 Fifth Avenue has a juicy website with floor plans you can read. To die for. Any info on who the buyers are? I like it better than 15 Central Park West. It's slobbericious.
