The final week of May 2024 was a shorter business week by virtue of the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 27. However, the number of sales recorded held relatively steady week-over-week, and some notable transactions were recorded during this time.
Acclaimed architect J.E.R. Carpenter's designs were instrumental in luring New York's wealthiest out of their mansions and into apartment buildings, and he made his home in the Italian palazzo-style 920 Fifth Avenue. This building was home to the week's top sale, top-floor duplex #14/15AD, which closed for an even $21,000,000. This represents a reduction from the original price of $26.9 million, perhaps a reflection of the fact that the home is in need of renovation. However, there is no improving on its prime Fifth Avenue address and views of Central Park.
It was trailed closely by Penthouse #15E at 135 East 79th Street, which closed for $17,750,000 in the top condo sale of the week. The sale was recorded a few short weeks after Penthouse #15W had second-highest sale of the week it was recorded. The building was an early entrant in a new wave of luxury Upper East Side condominiums, and availabilities are few and far between.

The top Downtown sale and fourth-highest overall was for #WEST27C at One High Line, which closed for $10,557,263. It is located on a high floor of the all-residential West Tower of the two-towered development, and the buyer (identified only through a trust) will enjoy sweeping river and skyline views, as well as residents-only amenities and services of the forthcoming Faena Hotel in the East Tower.
But for all the excitement of dazzling new Downtown construction, historic lofts have not lost their luster: The fifth-highest sale took place at 42 Wooster Street, a cast iron commercial building dating back to the late 19th century and converted to residential use nearly 100 years later. Residence #5N, a full-floor home with direct elevator access and private terrace, closed for $9,500,000.
