The spacious pad had 4 bedrooms, 4.5 bathrooms, an eat-in kitchen and a library. The place had “a peek” of the Hudson River, and was only about a dozen-block walk downtown to 160 Riverside Drive, where many of the '30 Rock' character’s most memorable mishaps had taken place. Built in 1917, Fey now owns two of the 32 units in the co-op building.
