Anderson Cooper to Live in Patrol House Number 2?

Posted on: December 22nd, 2009 at 6:27 am by

Yesterday, a commenter tipped us off to the nascent rumor that CNN’s Anderson Cooper had recently purchased Patrol House Number 2 at 84 West Third Street. The rumor has been swirling for a couple months, but is getting more attention now.

According to The Real Estalker, Cooper and partner Ben Maisani purchased the property together back in September for $4.3 million.

Listing information for the four and some story firehouse shows it was listed at $4,750,000, measures a considerable 8,420 square feet, and still has its original brass poles, circular stairs, a herringbone brick floor and a two-story detached building that was once used as a stable. Further investigation turns up property record information that reveals the firehouse was sold in early September of 2009 for $4,300,000.

Perhaps this explains our chance encounter with the plainclothes news anchor a couple months ago near the corner of Sullivan Street. At the time he was walking with two suits, no doubt talking business.
