Yes, Al Roker owns more than one home. The Today star has a beautiful brownstone building in the center of Manhattan that he’s owned for more than 15 years, and he also has another house just outside of New York City in the Hudson River Valley.
Since the coronavirus pandemic started, Al and his wife, Deborah Roberts, thought it would be best for them to quarantine in Columbia County with their three kids — Leila, Nicholas and Courtney. “It’s the anti-Hamptons. You can still go to the grocery store and get a quart of milk for less than $35,” the meteorologist joked to Forbes about their life in the Valley.
Before he returned to the Today show’s N.Y studios in August 2020, Al was filming the program from his luxurious abode, which is “five minutes from the Massachusetts line.” In photos the dad of three shared on Instagram, you can see he has a massive library in his study, a state of the art kitchen and a breathtaking backyard.
“It’s been interesting with this pandemic,” Al said about filming everything from home. “Timing-wise, [COVID-19] happened as all this technology came along that allows us to do all this. If it had happened even three or four years ago, print and radio would have been OK, but television would be really hamstrung.”
An unforgettable moment was when Al’s cohost Savannah Guthrie came to visit him in the Hudson Valley area. Although they practiced social distancing and didn’t shake hands, it was great to see them reunite near Al’s beloved home.
“Ahhhh. #ReunitedAndItFeelsSoGood. So good seeing @savannahguthrie in person here on @todayshow live from #hudsonny,” the TV personality captioned the Instagram post on June 23. But now that he’s back in the studio, Al can split his time between his Upper East Side abode and his vacation house outside the city.
After all, it’s always been his dream to live in a brownstone. “I saw them on The Cosby Show and across from my high school,” he previously told Closer Weekly. “I always thought that was real New York living and a nice thing to have in the city.”
