Just as Bruce Willis leaves the Eldorado co-op on Manhattan's Upper West Side, newshound/talk show host Meredith Vieira is moving in. The New York Post says that Vieira has bought a three-bedroom, fourth-bath penthouse in the Art Deco building bordering the northern reaches of Central Park. Asking price: $8.55 million.
Seems like a good move, investment-wise. Willis had his three-bedroom home on the building's fourth floor on the market at $13 million for only one week before a buyer scooped it up.
Vieira's new digs, recently renovated, feature two planted terraces overlooking the Central Park reservoir. It also boasts:
Private elevator landing.
South-facing windows with onyx sills.
Herringbone oak floors.
Master suite with four custom closets and terrace access.
The Eldorado, between West 90th and 91st streets, was designed by Emery Roth and completed in 1931. It's considered one of the finest Art Deco structures in Manhattan, attracting such biggies as Alec Baldwin, Faye Dunaway, Moby, Garrison Keillor and Michael J. Fox as either current or former cooperative owners.
In the series finale of HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," gangster Nucky Thompson has one last dance with his wife in a Manhattan building called the Eldorado, which would have been newly opened when the show takes place during the Great Depression.
