Find all recorded transactions in the table and map at the bottom of the page.

Six of the top 10 closings came within tall and slender skyscrapers. If the recent conversion of the Woolworth Building is included, eight of the top ten sales were in new construction condominiums. The Robert A.M. Stern-designed and Zeckendorf-developed 520 Park Avenue made a strong showing claiming the top two spots. Last week, The New York Post reported a $73.8 million sale in the recently-finished tower by British billionaire James Dyson. A source tells the Post the 9,138-square-foot spread is a six-bedroom penthouse with a 279-square-foot balcony and 360-degree city views. The closing has yet to be recorded by the city. Other big shots who've reportedly purchased in the building include publicist Ronn Torossian, billionaire Frank Fertitta, and Bob Diamond, former CEO of Barclays.
