Ganek and his wife, novelist Danielle, have paid $28 million for a penthouse in Lafayette Street’s Puck Building. The couple is set to list their current home in 740 Park Avenue—seeking about $44 million, according to the New York Observer.
The Ganeks have been considering a move downtown for several years, the Observer reports. Their new home is smaller than the old, with three bedrooms compared to five. But the 6,000-square-foot apartment—one of only six at the Puck Building—does have vaulted ceilings and outdoor space.
