East 26th Street, New York City, (inset) Chelsea Clinton (© Microsoft Corporation/Nokia, Evan Agostini/Invision/AP)Chelsea Clinton and her husband, Marc Mezvinsky, have contracted to buy a new apartment in the Flatiron District of New York City, which had just been listed for $10.5 million.


The 4,967-square-foot condo unit has four bedrooms and six baths, plus a half bath, laundry room and media room. The enormous master suite has two baths and two dressing rooms, and the living area is open to the kitchen.


The apartment is one of only four in a new development called The Whitman, which was converted from  a 1924-era showroom owned by the plumbers union. Each apartment takes up an entire floor, with all the rooms coming off a long hallway that runs the length of the apartment. You can see photos and a floor plan here.

Even though the building has only four units, it is a full-service building, with a doorman and a gym, according to the listing. Condo fees are $4,342 a month, and the monthly real-estate taxes are $7,913.

Clinton, who is studying for a doctorate in international relations and working as a special correspondent for NBC, and her husband, who is co-founder of a hedge fund, already live in the neighborhood, a source told The New York Post, which is how they found the apartment. "It’s great for them, because it is in a hot neighborhood and it is very private. There aren’t hundreds of neighbors, and there is great security," the source told The Post.

The building overlooks Madison Square Park, and the first floor will be retail space. Clinton and Mezvinsky signed a contract for the fourth-floor unit.

Clinton's parents, former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, came by to see the apartment last weekend. The tour was supposed to be private, but the building was filled with construction workers. The Clintons posed for photos with the workers, The New York Daily News reports.

All I wanna know is how can Chelsea Clinton be worth $15 million already?  What has she done, exactly?  She's only 33, and you don't get that kind of money a few years out of college no matter how high you go in corporate America!  I'm really curious, because there's something I'm obviously doing wrong (not to mention all the other college grads who are washing dishes these days).  And we're supposed to live in a meritocracy?  What a joke!

Poor Chelsea...had to put up with a lot in her WHAT??  And this is her first home...for $10 million dollars?  Politics is  job??? Since when????  All these politicians go into office to see how much money they can make and could care less about the a average person who is, I'll say $50,000 or less.

Obama was also the one with the poor 'single parent' bit.  Woe is me...

Sick and tired of these political hypocrites...

Democrats or Republicans - doesn't matter.  Most politicians are self-serving sh*tsacks.

yesterday I read where a Seattle techno multi-millionaire gave up his extravagant lifestyle, huge`mansion and big fancy cars expensive traveling and all the trappings that go with it all, and now lives in a 420 sq ft apartment that is basically one room that have multiple purposes.  It has one small bathrm  and he owns only 6 shirts and is very happy. It was very very nice and I think it will would feel freeing .  Like he said , his stuff was owning him and the stuff just makes you want more. But true 10.5 mill for a NYC apartment is not that uncommon and I am sure Bill and Hill have the money to help too. `Maybe he hubby makes lots of $$$ too.  Who really cares tho.  I am just grateful for what  "I" have even tho I rent. It is home to me and is still nice.

I have to say I am so disappointed with the reaction to this story. There are people out there who must be so unhappy with their own lives that they have to tear down everything and everyone around them. This was NOT

a political move-the couple just bought theri first home for heavan's sake! If it seems elaborate to some it's because you don't understand that they live in a much higher tier of life than we do. Look at the Bush family for instance, having homes in texas and practically their own island in Maine. Who cares? If they can all afford it and are happy what business is it of ours? Pollitics is a job, not a lifestyle. As for Chelsea, she is a young woman who has put up with a lot in her life, being in the spotlight since whe was a child. People critisized her for not being what they considered pretty-can you imajine? an 11 yr old having to hear this and read it in the paper? Come on folks! This kid is intelligent, articulate, has been working and going to school when she doesn't really have to do anything. Look at the Kardashians, the Lindsay Lohans, and Paris Hilton and compare them to the fine role model that Chelsea is. AND THEN LEAVE HER ALONE!

To be frank, Everyone to his/her own order.  They have the money so, let them spend it in whatever

way (s) they want to because we only live this life once.....We are unable to take what we have with us....... Let us give this young couple our blessings instead of being nasty to them.  I'm proud because I'm  a mother of children who supports other parents.

AMAZING! If 'any' conservative, especially the Bush daughters, did the same thing....the media would go ballistic in these challenging economic times! It would lead every news broadcast in America! The Clinton's are the biggest hypocrites that ever lived. Bill Clinton and his "I can feel your pain" crap trying to relate to all the little people who elected him and that lying, corrupt wife who 'knows nothing about the murders in Bengazi' and our brave Americans who died.....yea, right! It would appear the apple does not fall far from the tree with the daughter. Success and living the good life is the American dream.....many of us work hard for this......why are they all such hypocrites when it comes to themselves and how they live? Obama lives like a King, yet wants the rest of us to pay more for his BIG government. The Clinton's or the Obama's could NOT make it in the private sector at a real job, or building a company (providing real jobs.....) and they know it. The government has fed them, housed them, and now they exploit it all for BIG $$$ and criticize the rest of us for any success! These folks are a national disgrace and a joke!  

On week ago Friday, the same day Jack Lew was sworn in as U.S. Treasury Secretary, sociopath Hillary attempted to illegally divert $1.7 TRILLION of U.S. Treasury funds to a secret CIA proprietary account in the People's Republic of China.


Both Chelsea Clinton (Hillary's daughter) and former Citibank CEO and Clinton era Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin have power of attorney over the account.


Reference: Chelsea Clinton just the other day purchased a $10.5 MILLION apartment in New York City.


Note: The illegal THEFT of U.S. Treasury funds was enabled by the Dallas, Texas branch of the German Nazi Bush Crime Family controlled Commerzbank.


Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher became aware of this treasonous grand larceny and notified Federal Reserve Chairman Bernard Bernanke and sent criminal referrals to the U.S. FBI, the U.S. Treasury and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder.

While this is not a cheap apartment, it is not all that expensive by Manhattan standards.  Your basic crappy home in need of work in only a so-so location is about $1100 a square foot--and that is a coop.   A decent condo is about 15% more and put it in a nice location and in good condition and you are easily in the $1500/SF range.  Top buildings can easily run twice that and the best run $4-5,000/SF.
Try finding a halfway decent 3BR under $3 Million and you will look a long time, Our 3BR with a real Dining Area is worth that in a heartbeat and we are located in a more emerging area.
Sure we Manhattanites make a lot more, but we spend it the same way, so it is all relative.  It is why most families (Couple with 2 kids) can not possibly afford to live here)  It is why that, except rent stabilized tenants who are disappearing fast, you live here when you are young and then move to the burbs.
Remember for that money we don't get a yard, garage

 Part of comment reposted from another comment...,Why do you bash the Clintons....they did not tell the people that there was weapons hidden in Iraq and started a war that approx 4,000 soldiers died plus a large number that are injured and the cost in the trillions to the US..IF YOU ARE UNHAPPY ABOUT THE POLITICAL CLIMATE IN THE UNITED STATES, WHAT ARE YOU DOING ABOUT IT BESIDES MAKING IRRELEVANT NASTY COMMENTS? How much time are you spending being involved in your community and knowing what is needed to improve things at the very basic level? If things aren't working at the very basic levels, then how in the world do you think they can work for a nation that is as large and complicated -- and as mired with as many differences and problems as there are people in our United States? I am amazed at the number of people who are 'talking' about this story -- amazed that I stopped to read the details -- but WHO ARE ANY OF YOU TO JUDGE JUST WHAT CHELSEA CLINTON KNOWS/DOESN'T KNOW. I do think that Chelsea has led an admirable life thus far - we have not read about drugs, drinking etc,, as we have with young Hollywood. No one seems to blink at their MILLION DOLLAR SALARIES AND MANSIONS IN THE HILLS --- WHY IS THERE SUCH A DOUBLE STANDARD? and can I ask you what you AND I are doing for the WORLD and then we can compare ourselves to what the Clinton's are doing for the WORLD. Why not write back and tell me what you are specifically doing to make the world better == those of you who have so many awful things to say about a young woman who has done nothing but TRY TO BE A GOOD PERSON and from what I can see has been. Thank you.
