Buzzy downtown lofts may attract celebrities and headlines but an Upper East (or Upper West) side address continues to be a top choice for buyers who can afford the best. Case in point: Footwear mogul Steven Madden, whose $12.2M buy of a Billionaires' Row penthouse at 252 East 57th Street made the top three closings list, also owns a townhouse on the Upper East Side. Find out where else the week's biggest-ticket buys were, below.

Shoe brand honcho Steve Madden stepped up to a stellar spread on East 57th Street. The company’s founder and former CEO dropped $12.2 million on a five-bedroom condo at the 65-story Billionaires’ Row tower designed by Skidmore Owings & Merrill. The trophy home boasts a 38-foot-long living/dining area, balcony and high-end fixtures and finishes from top to toe. The best perk of all may be the 61st-floor northern, eastern and western views of the city skyline, Central Park and the East River.
