Matt Lauer's Upper East Side Apartment Sale Finally Closes

Matt Lauer's closing the book on his life in NYC ... at least for now.

The fired "Today" show co-host finally unloaded his 4 bed, 4.5 bath apartment on Manhattan's Upper East Side Monday, months after news broke he was selling it. Pics of his pad show a closet full of Lauer's on-air suits ... which have obviously been gathering dust since late November.

Matt used the home during the week while he was working in the city, but after he was canned from his TV job for sexual misconduct ... he put it on the market.

According to the NY Post, he hauled in more than $7 million on the sale.

Since his departure from "Today" ... Lauer's been spending most of his time in the Hamptons -- though he and his estranged wife have their estate on the market there too.
