Movin' On Up: Bob Costas Scores a Deluxe Apartment in the Sky

Last time Bob Costas landed in our blog was back in January when St. Louis Post-Dispatch sportswriter Dan O'Neill took several unprovoked potshots at the broadcaster. If, as we suspected, O'Neill was jealous of the immense fame and wealth Costas has amassed in the sports-media trade, the P-D columnist may want to stop reading here.

Last week the Wall Street Journal reported that Costas closed on a new, $10 million apartment on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

The three-bedroom, 3,500-square-foot pad in the just-finished Fifteen Central Park West building features amenities such as a private twenty-seat theater, wine cellars, room service with a private chef, a health club and a swimming pool.

Costas' neighbors in the building include Sting, actor Denzel Washington and Nascar driver Jeff Gordon.

The WSJ reports that Costas' previous two-bedroom apartment in Manhattan was purchased for nearly $5 million in 2005. But lest you think the broadcaster has turned his back on his hometown, know that Costas still keeps a mailing address here. His luxury condominium on Hanley Road in Clayton was appraised last year at slightly more than $1 million, according to St. Louis County tax records.
