The Real Deal New York

Writer Toni Morrison picks up $3.8M Tribeca pad

Nobel and Pulitzer prize-winning novelist Toni Morrison picked up a three-bedroom condominium at Tessler Development’s 66 Leonard Street.

The 2,300-square-foot loft space went for $3.8 million, the New York Post reported. The posh pad boasts views of the Empire State Building and building amenities such as a rooftop terrace, children’s play area, fitness center, media room and garden courtyard.

Amy Nick Bader of Fox Residential, who represented Morrison in the deal, declined to comment to the Post. Morrison’s better known works include “The Bluest Eye” and “Beloved.” [NYP]Julie Strickland
