Former ‘Today Show’ host’s penthouse for sale

Local New York

By Sara Palsky


A penthouse at 37 West 12th Street's Butterfield House sold in July for $4.465 million, and now a neighboring unit is ready to take its chances on the open market. This place is a little bigger—4BRs to the other unit's 2BRs—with a correspondingly higher ask of $6.995 million. The broker babble is sure the apartment is worth it: "It has what every penthouse buyer wants: location, light and views." And let's not forget the obligatory tenuous celebrity connection, "First owned by Today Show's initial host David Garroway." Even the sunken living room, a feature that doesn't usually excite us, doesn't seem out of place here. Of course, the buyer will have to fork over the whopping monthly maintenance of $4,994.
