Our favorite feisty secretary just nabbed a Manhattan condo for $1.16 million. Mad Men star Christina Hendricks secured a spot in the very luxurious Parc Vendome building on W. 56th St. nearing the conclusion of the critically acclaimed AMC TV show.
Even though it’s nice, I wouldn’t go as far as to say it’s worth a million. Sorry, Joan. And when I said “condo” earlier, I actually mean a 800 square-foot 1 bedroom. Even though this is around the standard price for luxury apartments in NYC, especially in a coveted building like the Parc Vendome, I’m betting she could have gotten a lot more with her money. The one-bedroom, 810-square-foot apartment has a decorative fireplace, a private study and hardwood floors. But it’s like, you’re paying a million and don’t even get a patio?
I guess one perk is the fact that almost half of the homeowners in the building use their homes as pieds-a-terre, meaning it’s not their primary residence. So Hendricks and her husband actor Geoffrey Arrend may have the building all to themselves, but the price still seems outrageous. Take a look at the pictures and see for yourself.
See what I mean? Forget Manhattan, Hendricks. Take your million and Move to L.A. Please.
