New York is slowly being taken over by Russian oligarchs, and this newest acquisition is no exception. A Russian billionaire named Alexey Kuzmichev recently bought the Atterbury mansion in the Upper East Side at 33 East 74th st, as well as an adjoining condo with plans to turn it into one large home. Kuzmichev purchased the $10,000 square foot mansion for $42 million with the intention of combining it with a smaller, 3,800-square-foot apartment, previously purchased for $15.5 million.
