Orthopaedic Surgeon Pays $3.55M For 5th Ave Co-op

Dr. Robert Haar, a board-certified Orthopaedic Surgeon with a specialty in sports medicine, just paid $3,550,000 for a ‘7 into 6′ room pre-war co-op apartment at 880 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan.


The surgeon paid $250,000 less than the original $3.8 million list price when the apartment was first on the market in April 2009.

Dr. Haar now has one of the best commutes that a New Yorker could ever dream about.

He can walk from his Emery Roth co-op at Fifth Avenue and East 69th Street to his office on East 88th Street, a mile-long stroll uptown along Central Park.

The sellers were Stribling and Associates agent Patricia Weeks and her husband, Stuart Rekant, the CEO of Juniper Content Corporation..

Of course, a Stribling broker had the exclusive for the Weeks-Rekant co-op. Stribling VP Shel Joblin had the listing for his colleague.

880 Fifth is located only one block away from the Frick Museum at 70th and Fifth Avenue, and seven blocks from Manhattan’s Fifth Avenue Synagogue.

This spacious apartment was essentially a 2,220 sq. ft. 1-bedroom co-op with an enourmous living room overlooking Fifth Avenue.

An ideal entertaining space for empty nesters, or single folks who entertain, the cooperative also features a huge gallery next to the entry foyer, and a 16-foot wide dining room.

The beautiful, gleaming white kitchen has a breakfast room, and the maid’s room makes for a perfect home office.

880 Fifth is not a pet-friendly co-op for dog owners. The listing emphatically stated that “[d]ogs [are] not permitted.”

For $3.55 million, Dr. Haar also gets the privilege of using a washer and dryer in his apartment.
