Carlos Slim

The Mexican Billionaire who bought a huge chunk of The New York Times is now gobbling up Manhattan real estate — including the gorgeous $40m townhouse across from the Met — the only townhouse left on Fifth Avenue.

I didn’t mind so much seeing The Times’ building decked out in Purple Day of the Dead statues — that’s in midtown.  But now we’re talking the UES.  A little more taste and a little less kitsch, please.

Is this what H&H Bagels is going to look like next?
