Funnywoman Tiny Fey pissed off her Upper West Side neighbors recently when it came to light that she’s on the board of the American Museum of Natural History, and therefore approved the institution’s controversial expansion plan. Unfortunately, it looks like she might be digging herself further into a hole, as she’s just bought the co-op above her current apartment at 300 West End Avenue, meaning she and hubby Jeff Richmond will likely be taking down some floors and walls to create one large duplex. According to the Observer, who broke the news, Fey paid $9.51 million for the new four-bedroom unit, much higher than the $7.5 million asking price.
The triple-mint ten-room apartment boasts a private elevator landing, large gallery/foyer, and 22 windows bringing in tons of natural light. There’s plenty of pre-war charm in the form of herringbone wood floors, moldings, and two wood-burning fireplaces. The eat-in kitchen looks nice and modern with a great deal of cabinet space, and we’re particularly fond of the built-in bookshelves in the office.
