He of some controversial commentsbespectacled Fox media personality Geraldo Riverahas officially thrown down $5.6 million for a four-bedroom apartment on the 40th floor of an Upper East Side building that has pretty stellar views of Central Park (h/t 6sqft). The combination of three units on the corner of 89th and Madison, which spans 2,500 square feet and also has its own steam room, originally asked $6.295 million. In 2011, Rivera and his wife Erica (who's also the co-signatory on the new deed) bought a 36th-floor place in the same building for $3.4 million. Seems that even though his reporting on the Baltimore riots got belittled, Rivera can still move on up on the Upper East Side. He and his wife are planning to sell their house in Edgewater, N.J., so keep an eye out.
