Hightower’s $3.44 M. Hobby
Mrs. De Niro Buys East 8th Street Limestone

Though Grace Hightower and her godly husband Robert De Niro just paid $20.9 million for a 15-room Central Park West apartment last month, she has also bought a $3,440,000 limestone townhouse at 516 East 89th Street.

“She’s going to gut it and renovate it,” said listing broker Beverly Feingold, a vice president at Halstead. “It could just be a hobby! I don’t know.”

City records list the buyer as GH Trust and “Grace Hightower, as Trustee.” (Her trust also owns a 1,653-square-foot apartment high up in the Trump Palace, 20 blocks south.)

The townhouse sales deed indicates that Ms. Hightower signed and closed on a contract in a single day—Oct. 3—which is blissfully swift. The couple’s newly renovated C.P.W. apartment closed 10 days later.

    April Fools ABANDON ALL HOPE YE WHO ENTER HERE is scrawled in blood red lettering on the side of the Chemical Bank near the corner of Eleventh and First and is in print large enough to be seen from the backseat of the cab as it lurches forward in the traffic leaving Wall Street and just as Timothy Price notices the words a bus pulls up, the advertisement for Les Miserables on its side blocking his view, but Price who is with Pierce & Pierce and twenty-six doesn't' seem to care because he tells the driver he will give him five dollars to turn up the radio, "Be My Baby" on WYNN, and the driver, black, not American, does so.
