Georgina Bloomberg, daughter of former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg and a professional show jumper, snapped up a second co-op at 101 Central Park West.

Through a trust, Bloomberg paid about $10.1 million for the 12th-floor unit, which had been sold by the Estate of Sherry Bernstein, property records filed Wednesday show. Measuring roughly 3,100 square feet, the deal prices out to nearly $3,289 per square foot.

A representative for Bloomberg did not immediately return a request for comment.

Halstead’s Louise Phillips Forbes was the listing agent for the three-bedroom home, which first hit the market in April for $10.4 million, according to StreetEasy.

Forbes declined to comment on the buyer, but said Bernstein had owned the unit for over 60 years.

“It was a wealth of memories and beautiful family,” Forbes said. “Mrs. Bernstein is renown in the fashion industry and lived a very long and memorable and impactful life.”

Bernstein, who had taken on the name “Sherry, Baroness Von Korber-Bernstein,” was known for her style and the Studio 54 club scene, according to a post about Bernstein written by her son, poet Charles Bernstein.

In 2010, Bloomberg picked up a sixth-floor, 2,100-square-foot unit at the pre-war building, which sits between West 71st and West 72nd Street on the edge of Central Park, for $4 million and later transferred the unit to the trust that bought the most recent apartment, property records show. However, it wasn’t immediately clear if Bloomberg plans to sell or keep this unit.
