Pat Kiernan's new home in Williamsburg (Photo: Real Deal)
Pat Kiernan, morning anchor for NY1, recently purchased a brownstone in Williamsburg, Brooklyn for a record setting price. At $2.02 million, Kiernan’s new homestead is thought to be the most expensive purchase ever in the neighborhood.

The New York Daily News reports on Kiernan’s move to hipster hot spot Williamsburg. The morning anchor’s new Bedford Avenue townhouse is “unassuming” from the outside with aluminum siding. However, inside, the townhouse features three stories and four bedrooms.

Though the townhouse is in what is considered the heart of Williamsburg, it’s doubtful that Kiernan will have ample time to enjoy all that comes with the area of Brooklyn. As morning anchor, Kiernan is up and out by 3am everyday.

Kiernan, 43, is uprooting his wife and two daughters from their Upper West Side digs to head for Brooklyn.

Recently, Kiernan has apparently had his sights set on making the break for national television while filling in for guest co-host alongside Kelly Ripa on ABC’s ‘Live with Kelly.’ Following Regis Philbin’s departure, the co-host spot is up for grabs.
