Moby Needs Another Buyer

Your Mama is a little late to the rodeo ring on this one, but since we like Moby the music man (and his little tea shop Teany on Rivington Street on the Lower East Side), we figured late was better than never.

See puppies, celebrity real estate gossip Josh Barbanel at the NY Times reported that the co-op board recently rejected a buyer for Moby's $7,500,000, four floor aerie in the south tower of the swanky El Dorado on Central Park West (as reported on Radar Online). Bummer for the sanguine Moby who seems to be handling the board's denial with an admirable diplomacy.

So Your Mama wants to encourage all you New York people with fat bank accounts, penthouse dreams and strong glutes to ring up one of his real estate agents and purchase his uptown House of Stairs so that Moby can move back downtown where he belongs.

Why did he even move uptown? Good views but boring as hell! I guess when you buy a co-op, especially in good uptown buildings you realise the pitfalls of selling it on

He's got more square footage in terraces than actual co-op. The library and observatory are cool and definitely different, but it looks like a shared bath between the master and the guest bedrooms. I don't know about Mama, but for $7.5mm, I need my own damn terlet.

If I had the money I wouldn't hesitate to snap this one up and move uptown!What you are not seeing is that it is at the very tip of the spire of the bldg.Spectacular,this kind of apartment can get this price I'm sure.

So_Chic, wanna go halfsies on it?

With that glorious view, who cares what's downstairs outside the front door; we'll send someone out for our comestibles.

BTW, anyone know if this is the building where they recently restored the terra cotta accents on the dual towers?
