Chelsea Clinton buys $10.5 million apartment
The former president's daughter and her husband signed a contract for a full-floor unit in a condo conversion in New York City's Flatiron District.
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.
Obama was also the one with the poor 'single parent' bit. Woe is me...
Sick and tired of these political hypocrites...
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.
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.
I asked if he (not she) would like to pose with me and was turned down flat.
Who cares how much she and her husband spent on condo in NYC? In order for this many people to get so worked up about it, there must be a great deal of jealousy involved. The two of them make a great deal of money...did you folks seriously expect them to live in a three story walkup in Brooklyn? Or a condo in New Jersey? She's the daughter of an ex-president, and has security issues to deal with, or didn't most of you catch the part about living on the top floor of the building which still has 24/7 security, even though their are only 2 other condos,with the first floor taken up by a retail store?
What I really don't understand is the idea some folks are espousing that Chelsea, being a Democrat has somehow sold out by buying and living in an expensive apartment. Does being a democrat mean that one has to be poor? Is that one of the qualifications for being a democrat? I seem to remember a great many famous democrats who were anything but poor, who also did much for this country. But, I guess many of you have forgotten about them. Try thinking, for once.
