    Default Chelsea Clinton Buys A $10.5 Million Apartment On Madison Square Park

    Former First Daughter Chelsea Clinton (now an NBC correspondent and Oxford doctoral candidate) and hubby Marc Mezvinsky are in contract for a $10.5 million apartment at The Whitman, a newly launched condo building on Madison Square Park. Clinton is perhaps the only Ph.D candidate in the world who can afford an apartment that expensive (it must help that her husband is in finance), but hey, it is convenient for her to hop uptown to 30 Rock for work. It only went on the market a month ago, and the relatively small renovated building houses just four long, narrow full-floor apartments that are about 5,000 square feet a pop.

    Clinton's new pad, which overlooks the park, is a 4BA/6.5 bath with a home office and a den. Amenities in the intimate doorman building include a residents'-only gym plus an elevator secured by lock and key with private landings on each floor. The 33-year-old, who was a history major at Stanford, must like that the building itself, 21 East 26th Street, was originally built in 1924. Last week, according to the Post, parents Bill and Hillary took a look around and even posed for photos with building workers.

    I wouldn't turn it down, because of where it is and how much it's worth, but all that light wood and white is just not me.

    I love it. Lovely views and not huge,just about right. With her own stuff in there it will be great.

    Great apartment. It's actually very large for an apartment - or even a house, 5000 sq ft. They're only showing a very small part of it.

    Nice neighborhood too.

    I hope for Sputnik's sake she doesn't spot that horrid LED TV in the living room.

    This for me, too. I do like the sage colored accents used throughout.

    Yep, I love the green drapes and chairs, the sage accents were my favorite things about the place, too.

    lol i saw it! and i'm giving it a pass because i figure this is just the pilot apartment they've set up, it's not actually lived in, hence the generic decor.

    Lovely place. Not overly fond of the view from the bedroom though.

    I see a business opportunity for us, marketing to wealthy hipsters. We could create and sell a kind of pull-down shade that would completely cover that TV set shelf space. The shade would have a replica painting or even a faux shelf with a faux handle on it.

    It looks like a hotel suite to me.
