Real Estate-rod

By

A-Rod, according to The Post, may drop somewhere between $39 and $41 million on a seven-room townhouse on East 80th St. between Fifth and Madison Aves. If he’s spending that much money on an Upper East Side pad, does he really plan to leave New York?

    According to Scott Boras, that will be about a years’ salary.

  2. zack says:

    I am still 100% convinced A-Rod will remain a Yankee. I think he WANTS to remain a Yankee, and everything he said in the last month or so seems to indicate that…

  3. Jersey says:

    Wow. Love this like I love those “this feels like home” comments he made when they clinched the WC.

  4. Yankee Fan in Chicago says:

    7 bedrooms, not 7 rooms.

    I mean, I knows it’s location, location, locations, and those streets between 5th and Madison are beautiful and chock full of embassies and what not, but those would have to be 7 ginormous rooms at that price.

    According to his real estate agent, upper East side condos are a great fit for ARod.

    i think arod would benefit from living downtown somewhere. it could even be in the trendy spots like soho or tribecca. Tiffany’s just put in a new store on wall street, so arods wife could stroll over there. downtown is less crowded, less touristy, more relaxed. it will help his playoff performance. really i think it will

    Man if he bought that house and then left the Yankees for another team he could NEVER show his face in NY. He would have to put a helipad on the roof and fly in so that he would never have to be seen on the streets.

      That makes me wonder how Yankee fans will treat him when he goes back to the Stadium for the ’08 AS game if he bolts for a NL team. Honestly, he deserves nothing less than a long & loud standing ovation.

  8. yankz says:

    Wasn’t it the Post that was reporting he was going to buy some mansion in CT?

  9. Travis G. says:

    the East Side?! i’ll boo him for that – any self-respecting NYer lives on the West Side!

    Sorry to say, but JDamon bought a huge Brookline manse ($14m if I recall correctly) shortly before signing with NYY. luxury real estate remains liquid and says little about their willingness to resign.

    • steve (different one) says:

      true, but i think A-Rod KNOWS if he is staying or not, since the only way he leaves will be if he WANTS to leave. i would bet that Damon really thought, up until the day he signed with NY, that he was going to stay with the Sox.

      your larger point is obviously true, it doesn’t necessarily mean anything that he is buying this asset, but i just think the situations are slightly different.

  11. [...] We know that A-Rod claims to like being in New York. On more than one occasion this season, he expressed his love for this town and its fans despite a tumultuous 2006 relationship. When the Yankees clinched the Wild Card, it sounded like A-Rod wanted to stay in New York. He’s even planning on buying a multi-million-dollar East Side townhouse. [...]
