Are Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich Moving to New York?

Dasha Zhukova and Roman Abramovich

The news is that Russian billionaire and owner of Chelsea football club bought up almost an entire block in New York City to build a mansion (apparently the Russian economy isn’t hurting him much, or he wants to put money into real estate before his fortune falls through the floor). Now the million (or millions) dollar question is, will he actually spend a lot of time there, when he’s not on his luxurious yacht? Okay, in plain speech, will he actually live there? Will his wife Dasha Zhukova, who is starting the Garage Art Museum in Moscow, be moving to New York? What will become of her Russian art museum if she moves to New York? What will become of Chelsea and Roman Abramovich’s yacht if he spends most of his time in New York? Will Roman use the mansion as a place to get away from Dasha from time to time? Or to get away from Chelsea? Or the yacht? Will Dasha use the mansion to take the occasional vacation from Roman? Or a place to forget the problems at the museum?

Well, whatever they are going to do with this mansion, they will have plenty of space to do it in. The question is, how much money will they have left?  The steel tycoon bought an 11 E 75th St. property for $29.7 million in October. The property was 9, 495 feet. In December, he purchased a 7, 386 square foot house two doors down at 15 E. 75th st. for $18.3 million. The property that lies between at 13th E 75th Street is currently being negotiated with the owners, the Fife family. It was purchased in 2000 for $7.4 million, but could be worth $20 million.

A representative of a  mysterious Russian rich man offered the owners a nice sum of money for their townhouses, but the Post reports that if they had known it was Abramovich, who is worth $9.3 billion, they might have held out for a lot more.
