(l-r) 378 West End Avenue and The Beresford, home of the top two sales of the past week (l-r) 378 West End Avenue and The Beresford, home of the top two sales of the past week
Between sizable apartments with top-of-the-line appliances and finishes, pandemic-proof features, thoughtful amenities, and a prime Upper West Side location near parks, restaurants, schools, and transportation, 378 West End Avenue has proven highly attractive. A few weeks after an apartment sold for $25.95 million, a penthouse unit closed for $25,500,000. Two additional penthouse units are in contract, and remaining availabilities start at $5.975 million.
Also on the Upper West Side, the week's second-highest sale and top co-op sale took place at The Beresford, a New York City Landmark located on Central Park West and designed by Emery Roth. Residence #15/16A, a massive duplex on high floors, closed for $19,000,000. Public records identified hedge fund executive Daniel Goldring and his wife, Libby Goldring, as the sellers; the buyer was listed as Susan Weber, historian/founder and director of the Bard Graduate Center for the Decorative Arts, Design History, and Material Culture.

On the opposite side of Central Park, it was another triumphant week for 109 East 79th Street. Exactly one year after sales launched, move-ins have begun and the building is 95% sold, with five penthouses among the highest-priced contracts of the year. Last week, a five-bedroom half-floor unit on the sixth floor closed for $17,202,888 in the third-highest sale of the week. Five floors up, Residence #11W was hot on its heels with a closing price of $16,389,350.
The top downtown sale and fifth-highest overall was #PH7/8N at The Roebling Building, a Tribeca warehouse-turned-condominium at 169 Hudson Street, which closed for $16,000,000. Both the buyer and seller conducted the transaction through LLCs, but rapper/entrepreneur Diddy once owned a four-bedroom loft in the building.

382-Lafayette-Street-01 382 Lafayette Street (CityRealty)
Decades before the Supreme Court legalized same-sex marriage, Astor Place Theatre founder/nightlife entrepreneur Bruce Mailman and his longtime partner, Dr. John Sugg, devised an unusual plan to protect their assets, which included a loft apartment on Lafayette Street: Before Mr. Mailman died of AIDS, he married longtime friend Lucienne Reed in a move that allowed him to transfer his assets tax-free to a spouse. Six months after Mr. Mailman's death, Dr. Sugg married her so as to acquire his partner's assets. Most recently, years after Dr. Sugg's death, Ms. Reed was listed as the executor of the couple's estate when the apartment sold to an LLC.

From Fox News to MSNBC to Newsmax, journalist Greta Van Susteren has made no shortage of moves over the past few years. This applies to real estate as well - she sold her Midtown condo for $2,950,000 in January 2017, and just sold a West Village studio. Public records indicate that she and her husband, attorney John Coale, bought the apartment for $290,000 in 2013.
