Wanna buy David Wright’s Manhattan loft?

I’m kind of a real estate voyeur. Maybe it’s a holdover from back in the day (like, say, 2005) when high end real estate seemed sexy and exotic rather than a horrible millstone around our nations’ economy and, some may argue, its soul.

But hey, it’s fun. And it’s always fun when a ballplayer’s real estate is involved. In this case David Wright‘s 4000 square foot Manhattan loft.  See the pics here.  Extra points go to Wright for the “Scarface,” “Godfather,” and “The Departed” posters in his rec room. Or rec area, seeing as though I thought “loft” meant no individual rooms. Or at least it used to.

Anyway: if you agree that nothing says gangster like David Wright, you may want to put an offer on this fine piece of real estate. Only $7,850,000!  Act fast!

    Wrong “Scarface”. Howard Hawks’ 1932 version with Paul Muni would have really gotten props. But he does get points for having Rita’s “Gilda” on all the big screens.

    Maybe Jeter should take it so he can get his beauty sleep. Who knows? Maybe more sleep will help him run down infield popups….

    I guess he was told he’ll be seeing a pink slip soon huh? I wonder who’ll land him???

      Despite the many articles about Wright being traded, I’d like to beleive that Alderson wants this guy to remain a Met for as long as possible.

      Rebuilding or no, the Mets need Wright to remain the face of the team.

    in NYC, “loft” just means “converted from an industrial building and doesn’t comply with normal building code regulations, mostly the ones about every living room and bedroom having windows”

    Man, I could live pretty comfortably there.

      Who would dislike this?

    Between Park Avenue South and Broadway, very nice. It looks like he goes in for the minimalist concept in decor. I don’t know about the almost $8MM price tag though. A little rich for my blood.

    I’m a real estate voyeur, too. Never underestimate the power of professional staging done to sell a house/loft/condo whatever. Could be Wright has good taste in movie posters, or has a real estate agent.

    The real estate agent is one of the featured agents on Selling New York on HGTV. Maybe we’ll see the loft featured in an upcoming episode.

    The Mets hope that a move by Wright to a smaller loft will result in an increase in his offensive output.

      Maybe he should have just moved the walls in on this loft.
