Gloria Steinem buys an Upper East Side ‘diamond in the rough’ for $1.1M

The sunny co-op comes with high ceilings and classic details

Feminist icon Gloria Steinem just picked up a $1.1 million apartment on East 73rd Street, the New York Post reports.

The breezy floor-through, initially listed at $975,000, has a shabby-chic vibe to it—the listing, from William Raveis Real Estate, describes the place as “a true diamond in the rough”—and boasts “generously proportioned rooms with exceptionally high ceilings.”

The unit is also equipped with two working fireplaces, a spacious living room, and various other unspecified “classic details.” Maintenance clocks in at an eminently reasonable $650/month, but as a commenter notes, taxes are quite high at $1,739.21 per month.

Steinem is not a newcomer to the Upper East Side brownstone. The Ms. Magazine founder also owns two other apartments in the building. As Steinem told Oprah in this charming video tour, she first took up residence—as a renter, with a roommate—in the building in 1966.
