Pals Bono, Nina Griscom get him by the co-op board.
Moby is leaving his longstanding Lower East Side existence for an Art Deco aerie on Central Park West, far from the teeming crowds of hipsters. The vegan musician and tea-shop proprietor got in with the help of recommendation letters from Charles Rockefeller, Nina Griscom, and Bono (who used to live in the building). A rep from his office confirmed that Moby recently closed on a $4.5 million deal for an unusual five-level penthouse formerly owned by an opera singer. The wedding-cake-style apartment has five terraces, including two with 360-degree views stretching from the George Washington Bridge to JFK. Architect James Harb has been hired to renovate the place by next spring. Moby isn’t abandoning downtown entirely, however. He’ll continue to use his Nolita apartment as an office and to frequent his Rivington Street café, teany.
