A $5.9 million-dollar apartment in Manhattan may seem like a strange place for a member of the Oberlin-bred, post-hardcore band, Bitch Magnet to live, but when you’re married to the founder of Mediabistro, it shouldn’t be that much of a shocker. Via The New York Times:
She is still driving her 2002 Subaru Forester. Instead of a new car, Ms. Touby acquired a $30,000 hand-woven leather, chain-mail and fur indoor swing designed by a guy who also works in anthracite, a medium Ms. Touby and her husband, Jon Fine, a musician and magazine writer, found a little grim for their taste. The swing was one of the first things they chose for their new apartment, a 4,000-square-foot loft a few blocks north of Union Square — “in the heart of Silicon Alley,” Ms. Touby will tell you proudly. They bought it in 2009 for $3.9 million, and in a process that ended only eight days ago, renovated and furnished it for an additional $2 million.
