Brooklyn BOE Clerk, Diane Haslett Rudiano; noteworthy real estate deal in 2014

Upper West Side Eyesore Sells for Millions
Owner of Once Elegant Brownstone, Beseeched to Fix Up the Place, Paid $5,000 in 1976

For decades along West 76th Street, neighbors watched with mounting alarm as a vacated brownstone, traces of its 19th-century glory still etched into in its facade, fell into deeper and deeper disrepair.

Now the Upper West Side property has been sold by $6.6 million to a developer who plans to restore it as a single-family mansion, brokers say.

City records show that the seller, Diane Haslett Rudiano, paid $5,000 for the home in 1976 in a government-supervised estate sale. The sale follows years of complaints by neighbors, preservationists and elected officials.


"It is a very emotional thing for me," said Ms. Rudiano, the chief clerk of the Board of Elections in Brooklyn. "Life doesn't always turn out the way you wish. I am satisfied that the buyer is going to do a very fine job of renovation."
