Looks like lovable little Dora is aiming to explore some places to call home.
Or, rather, the co-creator of “Dora the Explorer,” the popular bilingual cartoon character and cash-cow brand — Eric Weiner — is looking to make a move.
According to the New York Post, Weiner and his playwright wife, Cherie Vogelstein, have listed their Upper West Side apartment for $12.99 million. The 5-bedroom, 4.5-bathroom unit is part of the “largest ‘A’ line in The Laureate building on 2150 Broadway, a coveted building built in 2011, but using a Modern Beaux Arts style in addition to classic old prewar touches such as thick walls and floors and high ceilings.
The building all but beams at its heart-of-the-UWS location at 76th Street, bringing a modern vibe to the classic neighborhood while maintaining that prewar mastery you expect in a ZIP code that includes some of the city’s most iconic buildings, including the Ansonia, the Apthorp and the Dakota a few blocks away.
The unit sprawls 3,256 square feet and includes a master suite complete with a spa-like bathroom and a Juliet balcony. The creative couple purchased the pad in 2011 for $8.5 million.
On top of the 30-percent price increase since they purchased the place, the Weiners can no doubt explore a lot of different — and even pricier — options in the New York real estate market, given the royalties that the spunky and enduring little Dora racks up for Weiner. The show started on CBS in 2000, moved to Nickelodeon and is now the show with the most episodes ever produced for Nick Jr.
