For a man who helped put preppy, all-American apparel on the map, we assumed that Joel Horowitz and wife Ann would have gone for a more traditionally tony precinct. But the Tommy Hilfiger co-founder, ever cognizant of budding trends and tastes, has decided to settle in Greenwich Village.
The couple purchased a two-bedroom on the 22nd floor of 1 Fifth Avenue, according to city records, shelling out $3.5 million, a little under the $3.75 million ask, for what is almost certainly a pied-a-terre.
An apartment in an art deco co-op on lower Fifth is nothing to sneer at, but we can’t really imagine the man who built a 20,000-square foot stone mansion in Lake Tahoe settling for something so small as a primary residence.
