With the renovation drama of 510 Fifth Avenue behind him, Vornado Realty Trust chairman Steve Roth jumped into some less intense real estate dealings, like selling the 3,322-square-foot West Village loft he's owned since 1999. Public records, spotted by the Observer, show that Roth recently sold his duplex at 345 West 13th Street for $6.8 million?nearly four times what he paid for the place all those years ago. The place has everything you'd expect from a West Village loft: 12-foot high ceilings, exposed brick, original wood beams and columns, plus a terrace and a study with a wood-burning fireplace. Roth had it set up as a two-bedroom, but the listing notes that it could be easily converted into a four-bedroom.
