New anchor Jane Pauley and “Doonesbury” cartoonist Garry Trudeau have dropped $2.2 million on a very un-newsworthy co-op at 166 East 61st Street in Lenox Hill. The couple’s last real estate transaction was in 2005 when they traded a $13 million Central Park West pad for a much more modest $1.6 million co-op at 7 Beekman Place in Turtle Bay. Their newest buy, while rather bland, is about 20 blocks north and closer to the park and offers three bedrooms, three baths, and skyline views.
The home opens to an entry foyer that leads to the large living room and formal dining room. There’s a windowed galley kitchen (that could probably use some updating) and three sizable bedrooms, two of which have en-suite baths. The apartment is on the building’s top floor with only two other units.
Pauley and Trudeau bought the co-op along with their 33-year-old daughter Rachael Trudeau, so perhaps the new home is for her and her husband.
