Jeff Zucker Snaps Up Kitty's Old Place

The Upper East Side home of legendary actress Kitty Carlisle Hart, who died last April of pneumonia at the age of 96, has found a buyer after just 43 days on the market. According to the Stribling.com Web listing, the unsurprisingly stately eleven-room on East 62nd Street, which has five bedrooms, four baths and a library, has a "contract signed." (It was snapped up in August.) The site has pics of the apartment, in which you'll see that when they say "apartment," they mean "well-appointed palace," and by "library," they mean, "bowling alley." The spread is in Madison Avenue's fabulous Verona building, a luxe palazzo only containing 20 apartments. The rumored future owner of this rare real estate gem? NBC chief Jeff Zucker and his wife, Karen, who've been looking since 2005, when they sold their sprawling co-op on Central Park West, says a source. The new place is just a hop skip and a jump from Rockefeller Center, so don't be surprised if you start seeing Zucker walk to work in the mornings! Okay, no, you should still be surprised. —S.
