Madonna buys UWS co-op after suing

A prudent co-op board wouldn't approve celebrity buyers to begin with. Who wants all of that publicity and paparazzi hanging around your building?

Madonna paid $7 million for a seventh-floor co-op unit at 1 West 64th Street, closing on the deal April 7, according to city records posted today.

The board of the building, which faces Central Park, had originally barred her purchase of the seventh-floor unit, she charged in a lawsuit filed in December.

The 49-year-old singer alleged in court papers that the board of directors of the building's co-op board wrongfully blocked the sale, the Associated Press reported last year.

Madonna already owns a large apartment in the luxury building, which she moved into after being rejected in 1985 by the co-op at the San Remo, at Central Park West and 74th Street.
