MANHATTAN – Former ‘Good Day New York’ anchor-turned-right wing cable channel news firebrand Greg Kelly has bought a new pad here on the Upper East Side— ditching his digs in Hell’s Kitchen for a new apartment in Lenox Hill. 

Kelly— son of former NYPD Commissioner Raymond Kelly— was long known to New Yorkers as host of the popular local morning show, whose face was plastered on MTA buses in ads also featuring co-host and longtime FOX 5 anchor Rosanna Scotto.

Since leaving the local TV station in 2017, Kelly has gone on to host his own prime time talk show ‘Greg Kelly Reports’ on the right wing cable channel Newsmax, gaining even wider notoriety for his bizarre statements on social media including a wild rant about marijanua last March.

“SMOKING WEED (aka GRASS) is NOT a good idea,” Mr. Kelly’s tweet began.

“I’ve tried it (back in the day) and it was WORSE than anything that happened to HUNTER BIDEN. I ‘toked up’ with some buddies in Kentucky and woke up 4 days later in Nairobi, Kenya.  With no idea what happened. DON’T DO DRUGS.”

Just this week the Newsmax host posted to Twitter what he called a “RULE OF THUMB.”

“Hippos are Invariably portrayed as CUTE and Fun in CARTOONS,” Kelly wrote.  

“But in ‘reality’ they are MISERABLE BEASTS who chase after HUMANS and would EAT THEM given the chance.”

Now, it appears Mr. Kelly is our new neighbor.
