Anderson Cooper Buys NYC Firehouse

| Filed under: Anderson Cooper



CNN's Anderson Cooper bought a historic Greenwich Village firehouse for $4.3 million!

The 8,420 square foot building still has its original spiral staircases, brass fire poles, and murals on the walls documenting the fire patrol's history.

The firehouse was not a part of the FDNY but rather the old insurance-funded Fire Patrol. There's no approval as of yet for residential conversion but the interior is being demolished and the permit lists architect/developer Cary Tamarkin as the man in charge.

The century-old building has been nominated for the National Register of Historic Places and Anderson could stand to get a tax break on the property if the facade is kept up.

We just like the image of Anderson sliding down a pole in his personal firehouse.

    Love Him! Hawt to the Max. Buying a Historical Firehouse then removing the history (interior) is weird… hopefully its for residential purposes… 4.3 Million - How much is his net worth?

    Cary Tamarkin is a harvard Graduated Architect… Wonder what the silver foxxx's plans are? what the development plan is? (The 495 west street condo's are amazing).

    I like Anderson a lot,
    shame that he is not more apprciated
    When it comes to news reporting I put way ahead of most
    I think one problem is he is on shit network, and than he goes and co host with the like of Kathy Griffith

    Good for him - he's the best

    Interesting. Didn't his great-aunt Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney live in a converted carriage house in Greenwich Village. Maybe he is channeling the grand dame.

    I would so totally do him. 15 minutes. That's all I need. Woof!!
