“Big Bang” actor Jim Parsons purchased a $1.82 million apartment at 36 Gramercy Park East, the New York Observer reported. Carol Friedman and Ryan Serhant of Nest Seekers, the building’s exclusive marketing firm, brokered the deal.

The building is among the few condominiums along the private park, as it was converted from a rental in 2009 by Mann Realty Associates, with average asking prices of about $2,248 per square foot. Parsons came away with his 911-square-foot, two-bedroom apartment for $2,000 per foot.

The landmarked building, constructed in 1908, was famously home to John Barrymore (Drew Barrymore’s grandfather), Ethel Barrymore and Alfred Ringling of Ringling Brothers Circus.

The home was initially listed for $2.28 million last summer, before a price cut in February brought the cost down to $1.98 million, Streeteasy.com shows. Parsons entered into contract on the home July 7, and closed July 22. [NYO]
