Carlo Scissura and 242 82nd Street in Bay Ridge

New York Building Congress president Carlo Scissura is trading his Dyker Heights digs for a new three-story home in Bay Ridge.

Scissura purchased an eight-bedroom home on 82nd Street between Third Avenue and Ridge Boulevard for $2.2 million, according to documents filed with the city’s Department of Finance on Tuesday. Though not far from his current Brooklyn home, the Bay Ridge property offers a shorter commute to his daughter’s school, Scissura said on Tuesday.

The house, built in 1899, spans more than 4,000 square feet and has a private driveway and two-car garage. The dining and living rooms each feature a fireplace, according to House-n-Key’s listing of the property. The previous owner is listed as Virginia Hindy.

Scissura, a life-long Brooklynite, took over as president of the Building Congress in January 2017, succeeding Richard Anderson, who held the position for more than 20 years.
