Hopefully Andrew Ross Sorkin did his research before buying his new apartment.

The New York Times reporter recently paid $2.315 million for an apartment listed for $2.295 million!

For those who would rather not do the math, that's $20,000 more than the asking price.

The 3-bedroom/3-bathroom co-op unit is on the Upper West Side, at 118 West 79th Street -- a mere stone's throw from both Central Park, and Zabar's!

Sorkin and his wife can look forward to high ceilings, marble floors, granite countertops, and a 24-hour elevatorman.
