Charlene Haroche, the widow of travel agency mogul Gilbert Haroche, purchased a Pierre Hotel co-op for $22.9 million, just four months after the Sherry Netherland condo she shared with her late husband sold for $70 million.

The 29th-floor Pierre Hotel co-op, at 795 Fifth Avenue, has four bedrooms and four bathrooms.

The sellers were Alfred Engelberg, an intellectual property lawyer, and his wife Gail.

A Chinese buyer in March purchased the Haroche’s former seven-bedroom, eight-bathroom home at the Sherry Netherland. The Haroches initially listed for $95 million, but were forced to chop the price.

Gilbert Haroche, the co-founder of Liberty Travel, died in April from complications related to colon cancer.

The Pierre unit purchased by Charlene sits just a few floors beneath the penthouse of the Pierre, which has been languishing on the market for $63 million after being originally listed for $125 million in 2013. The owner is another billionaire’s widow, Barbara Zweig, who was married to the late financier Martin Zweig.

In February, The Real Deal explored some of New York City’s biggest price chops.
