A-Rod coming to town?

2/8/2008:

Been hearing this Real Estate rumor for over a year now. The Daily News said that the Steppin’ Out magazine gossip column reported that A-Rod closed a deal in the Hudson Tea building.

Is this just another fabricated story to try and help the RE market here, or is he building that 25 million dollar mansion in the suburbs? When you’re worth a quarter billion dollars, not sure the Hudson Tea Building is considered even close to “luxury.”

Some buzz around town that New York Yankees third baseman Alex Rodriguez had purchased a top-floor unit over at the Maxwell Place condos. Heck, he could probably buy the whole building, really.

This info came from normally reliable sources, but as always, anyone can be susceptible to getting caught up in rumors. Since 411 hasn’t heard this first hand, has anyone else heard something about this? Any Realtors reading that can shed some light?

If this were true, what bar or restaurant do you think A-Rod would hang out at? Would anyone care?

He’d probably strike out in Hoboken, too!

If they were going to start a rumor to help the real estate market, hopefully they’d pick someone better than A-Rod. 😕

At least the field was closer to Hoboken than to Cooperstown. 😀

The parcel of land, on which the 1846 game was played, belonged to Weehawken. “Hoboken” baseball games seem to have much in common with “New York” football teams.
