Chelsea Clinton and husband Marc Mezvinsky have plunked down $10.5 million for an apartment  across from Madison Square Park, the New York Post reported.

The deal for the home in The Whitman,  at 21 East 26th Street, closed last month. The  5,000-square-foot apartment has four bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms, and the living room boasts sweeping views of the park. Elliman’s Melanie Lazenby, profiled last year in The Real Deal, and Dina Lewis had the listing. 

The five-story Whitman has one apartment per floor and a key-locked elevator.

“It’s great for them, because it is in a hot neighborhood and it is very private,” a source told the Post. “There aren’t hundreds of neighbors, and there is great security.”

President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton toured the apartment last week, posing for photographs with construction workers at the building.

Lazenby and Dina Lewis declined to comment to the Post. [NYP]Hiten Samtani
