Former Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa is selling her Brooklyn Heights duplex two months after leaving her job with the state. Located on the fourth floor of 22 Pierrepont Street, the three-bedroom home is asking $2.59 million. DeRosa jointly owns the apartment with her husband Matthew Wing, but, as the New York Post first reported, the couple recently split.

Last year, DeRosa became a household name in New York for her appearances during Cuomo’s daily press briefings about the pandemic. In August, DeRosa resigned after an investigation found the governor sexually harassed several government workers.

“Despite the fact that this chapter in our lives is ending, we are and always will be very close friends,” DeRosa and Wing said in a joint statement to the Post about their divorce.

Sources told the newspaper the former secretary to the governor had been staying at her sister’s in Cape Cod since late August and “is eyeing property in Greenwich Village.”

According to city records, DeRosa and Wing paid $2.2 million for the apartment in 2016.

The extra-wide brownstone takes up two levels and includes private outdoor space on the roof, which has views of both Brooklyn and Manhattan. Constructed in 1855, the classic Brooklyn Heights brownstone features high ceilings, hardwood floors, and a wood-burning fireplace.

Located on the lower level, the kitchen has a large center island, granite countertops, custom cabinets, and extra storage. The living room overlooks the treetops of Pierrepont Street and has a wood-burning fireplace and built-in shelving.

The lower level also has an additional bedroom and a smaller room that could make for a den or home office. On the upper floor is the primary bedroom, which has a wall of built-in closet space and a full en-suite bath. There’s also access to the roof terrace from this level.

The roof deck measures 525 square feet and offers plenty of space to play around with the layout and function of the terrace. Located just one block from the Brooklyn Heights Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park, the co-op sits within a six-unit townhouse.
