CNN head Jeff Zucker sells $15.35 million Upper East pad

CNN honcho Jeff Zucker, who announced he will step down at year’s end, and his ex-wife Caryn have just sold their place at the Verona, 32 E. 64th St., for $15.35 million, according to city property records.

That’s down from its original asking price of $17.5 million last year.

The former couple bought the sprawling, third-floor digs in happier times back in 2007 for $12.3 million, according to records.

The buyer is billionaire trader/philanthropist Michael Steinhardt and his wife, Judy.

The Steinhardts are known for their massive art collection, which features Jackson Pollock, Picasso, Cézanne, Paul Klee and Jean Dubuffet.

The couple even have a gallery at the Metropolitan Museum of Art named after them in the ancient Greek wing.

In 2018, authorities seized nine art works from their Manhattan home because they were allegedly looted from Greece and Italy.

He was then later accused of sexual harassment.

Caryn Zucker is reportedly moving to Palm Beach, where she bought $8 million digs, the Real Deal reported.

The Steinhardts’ new apartment in the 10-story prewar co-op comes with five bedrooms and 4½ bathrooms.

A private elevator landing opens to a grand gallery and large rooms, like a living room with Venetian plaster, an adjacent dining room with silk velvet walls, a lacquered library and private office and a large eat-in chef’s kitchen.

They also own homes in the Caribbean, Israel and Westchester, where there’s a petting zoo installed on their property.

The listing brokers for the E. 64th St. apartment were Warburg Realty’s Lisa Tarnopol Deslauriers and Linda Reiner.
