Keith Olbermann already lives at the Trump Palace on East 69th Street: He paid $4.2 million for a 2,100-square foot, three-bedroom apartment on the building's 40th floor in 2007. But that's clearly not enough space for the MSNBC host: Two weeks ago, Olbermann paid $810,000 for a 7th floor apartment in the same building. Guest quarters for out-of-town visitors? An abode for his cleaning lady?
Why Olbermann needed a second, smaller apartment in the same building is a mystery, although the pad does come with a lovely terrace, which will no doubt be ideal when Rush Limbaugh stops by for a Sunday afternoon barbeque. And you'll be pleased to hear he walked away with a bit of a bargain. The apartment was most recently listed for $849,000, which means Olbermann managed to slice $39,000 off the final price. (He put down $203,000 in cash and secured a $607,000 mortgage from Wells Fargo for the remainder.)
Below, the official property transfer report as well as a few photos of the Brazilian cherry wood floors that Keith is now padding around in his bare feet.
