As Anthony Weiner dealt with one of the biggest political scandals of 2011, he was also attempting to sell his New York co-op in Forest Hill with Madeleine Realty for $449,000.
Although Weiner did step down from all of his duties as congressman, his home was not completely off the market and recently went into contract, the New York Daily News confirmed with a Madeleine Realty receptionist.
According to a timeline by NBC New York, the first report of Weiner’s salacious online behavior occurred on May 27; the for-sale listing went on the market on May 21 and was removed on May 31. Weiner resigned June 16.
Weiner’s apartment on the tree-lined street in Forest Hills Garden area of New York seems a million miles away from the hubbub surrounding Weiner and his online activity, yet according to Curbed NY, Weiner’s co-op was very much part of the scandal — some of the photos he sent to the women were taken at this home.
This may not bother the new owner, or perhaps they picked up the home for different reasons like the hardwood floors, crown molding or updated kitchen with granite counter tops and cherry cabinets.
The co-op includes 850 square feet of living space with two bedrooms and two and half baths.
According to the New York Daily News, Weiner and his wife Huma Abedin have been spotted shopping for a bigger place in New York’s TriBeCa.
