Divorcing Lawyers Sell UWS Co-op For $1.925M
Another Upper West Side co-op apartment was just sold during the end of a marriage, giving former owners Nina Brodsky and Kenneth Roth some cash towards paying New York City divorce lawyers to help them put the finishing touches on ending their marriage.
The generously sized 7-room apartment on a high floor of 315 West 106th Street sold for $1.925 million. Unlike many sales noted here over the last year, however, there was no real discount from the original $1.95 million initial list price. The co-op was on the market for only a month before it went into contract in October 2009.
Public records show that Nina Brodsky, a Manhattan lawyer at Continuum Health Partners, filed for an uncontested divorce last month against Roth, an attorney and the Executive Director of Human Rights Watch. A former federal prosecutor, lawyer in private practice, and Iran-Contra affair investigator Roth reportedly receives an annual salary of $350,000 at HRW. Who imagined that working at a non-profit could actually be…well…profitable?
Brodsky and Roth lived at the co-op since 1993, having moved in from just a few blocks away.
Brown Harris Stevens brokers Janet Garson Gifford and David Anderson had the exclusive for the apartment.
The enormous living room and all of the bedrooms have a light-filled wonderful southern exposure, with views looking westward towards the Hudson River and Riverside Park. Thankfully, for this kind of money, it also appears that you get to use a washer and dryer in the kitchen.
The co-op board at 315 West 106th permits dogs, but only after they pass muster at the interview. The pre-war building was built in 1925.
The highest recorded sale in the building was in 2007 when Arnold ‘Arnie’ Eisen and Adraine Leveen paid $2.45 million for a low-floor apartment in the co-op after Eisen became the new Chancellor of the Jewish Theological Seminary .
