Bernard Spitzer sells co-op

Jul.July 28, 2008 03:19 PM

Real estate developer Bernard Spitzer, the father of former governor Eliot Spitzer, sold a cooperative apartment for $3.5 million in a former rental building he built in 1963 overlooking Central Park at Seventh Avenue.

The buyer of the unit in 200 Central Park South was identified as Rena Shulsky, the owner of the neighboring 20th-floor apartment.

It was the fourth unit Spitzer has sold in the building since 2004, according to property records. The prices ranged between $1.25 million and $3.5 million.

In that same time Spitzer donated 11 units to the American Museum of Natural History, one to the City College 21st Century Foundation and one to the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s research, the records showed.

The elder Spitzer built a handful of buildings in the city, including the 309-unit structure at the intersection of Central Park and Seventh Avenue, which is known for its distinctive curving facade. It was converted from a rental building into a co-op in 1984.

The sale to Shulsky closed on July 10, according to city property records.

Both Shulsky and Spitzer could not immediately be reached for comment.
