Short story writer Caitlin Macy and her husband, JPMorgan Chase trader Jeremy Barnum, have purchased a $3.5 million duplex on the 10th and 11th floors of 1 Lexington Avenue, the landmarked co-op on the corner of Gramercy Park North. The couple lived in a duplex seven floors below it until 2006, when they sold it for $2 million and moved to an Upper East Side condo off of Fifth Avenue. Their new digs at 1 Lexington come with a 24-foot wide master bedroom, an 80-foot terrace and floor-to-ceiling French doors, and the package was so appealing that the Barnums signed a contract in four days, listing agent Gale Rundquist, of Prudential Douglas Elliman, told the Observer. Originally listed for $5.3 million in late 2007, interest in the apartment didn’t pick up until October 2009, at which point the family beat out several other prospective buyers for the spot, Rundquist said. Uma Thurman lives in a duplex on the eight and ninth floors, directly below the Barnums’ new one. Restaurateur Danny Meyer also owns an apartment in the buildling. [NYO]
