Singer Harry Belafonte has paid $2,850,000 and $2,150,000 for adjacent, fourth-floor units in the eight-story Apple Bank building on Manhattan's Upper West Side, according to public records. Belafonte, 80, purchased the units in the newly converted, 29-unit building at 2112 Broadway (between 73rd Street and 74th Street) on the Upper West Side through his Belafonte Enterprises corporation, public records show. He told the New York Observer's Manhattan Transfers column this week that the Upper West Side "is truly a mosaic. It represents the best in the American spirit." Not realizing that the building is actually a year younger than he is, Belafonte initially told the Observer, "I'm glad to know that something has endured longer than I have." Then, when learning of the building's actual age, he responded, "Oh my God! Well, that makes it even more attractive." Belafonte purchased the two units directly from the development company doing the conversion, so unfortunately, no details were available on his units, other than what the Observer reported: that the combined units produce an L-shaped apartment, that the combined place has four bedrooms, and that the apartments' windows and dark hardwood floors are soundproofed. Recall that in November, Belafonte sold his 17-room spread at 300 West End Avenue to heiress Abigail Disney for $10.75 million, according to public records. Belafonte had owned that apartment for almost 50 years.
