The Upper West Side apartment of late “60 Minutes” humorist and curmudgeonly commentator Andy Rooney sold for $2.2 million last week.

Rooney’s estate listed the 1,500-square-foot co-op at the Crestmont, at 522 West End Avenue between West 85th and West 86th streets, in late May for $2.4 million. The two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, which features a formal dining room and eat-in kitchen, went into contract about two weeks later.

His segment, “A Few Minutes with Andy Rooney,” appeared on “60 Minutes” from the 1970s until a few weeks prior to his death in 2011 at the age of 92. He and his wife lived primarily in Rowayton, Conn., and purchased the Upper West Side co-op around 15 years ago as a pied-a-terre, according to the Wall Street Journal.

While Rooney’s family has already sold his Connecticut home, they plan to hold on to other properties in Rensselaerville, N.Y., and on Lake George in upstate New York.

“Girls” actress Zosia Mamet, daughter of famed writer and director David Mamet, bought a two-bedroom unit at the Crestmont for $1.2 million earlier this year. [WSJ]Rey Mashayekhi
