Conservative Queen Ann Coulter Buys $577K Upper East Side Co-op
Most residents of the Upper East Side are Hillary supporters, but that didn’t stop outspoken conservative political commentator Ann Coulter from buying a co-op in the ‘hood. According to city records released today, she bought the two-bedroom home at 12 East 87th Street for $577,000. Interestingly, the sale is significantly under its $1.8 million market value, but it does have a tenant in place who’s paying $1,600 a month, and the cash-only listing states that it’s for “investors only.”
The 1,400-square-foot unit has a wood-burning fireplace, high ceilings, and lead light windows, though the listing states that it will “need full renovation.” Coulter also owns a similarly appointed apartment nearby at 300 East 77th Street, which she bought in 2003 for $1.5 million, so it does make sense that her newest acquisition would be merely an investment.
